Graham White's flying school at Hendon; England.
Pupils at Graham White's flying school at Hendon, London.
Shot of a pupil in seat of primitive aeroplane (in which the pilot is totally out in the open); with another guy; who seems to be the teacher; right behind him; as if they're both seated in the same saddle. The guy in back is making motions (wearing big mittens) and even moving the other man's arms; evidently explaining things in a very physical way. Another man spins propellor. Shot from behind aeroplane as it starts up; rolls forward on the ground. The guy on the ground seems literally to disappear in a puff of smoke.
World War One; aviation
