One man in a chef's overall runs across the back of the waiting crowd as if he has almost missed the event. The plane, 'The Pride of Detroit' makes a bumpy landing. Two men run along holding wing struts as it stops. A large crowd surround the aircraft as the propeller comes to rest. Pilots, Brock and Schlee, pose in front of the aircraft, and shake hands.
