  • Short Summary

    Lovely film of girl aviators flying to the beach for a swim!

  • Description

    c 1927

    Filmed near Hamble, Hampshire.

    Two women climb aboard an Avian biplane. C/U of woman in cockpit. Plane takes off. Air to air shot of the plane flying above a coastline. The plane lands in a field. The girls climb out and take off their long coats. They have swimsuits underneath! A third friend joins them and they run down to the sea, waving to the cameraman. We see them having a swim then towelling themselves dry. Intertitle reads: "Home Jane!". The girls push the plane up the beach then we see it again in the air.

    Nice to illustrate rich girls at play?

    Safety print exists.
