  • Description

    Titles read: "The Air Circus. Sky Acrobatics. (Introduced by Sir Alan Cobham.)"

    Location of events unknown.

    M/S of Sir Alan Cobham in a studio, saying that we live in an age of rapid change and that the public are demanding new and up-to-date thrills. We see various shots of aeroplanes in a field, then several shots of planes performing stunts - flying upside-down, flying along with men standing on the wings, planes looping the loop and flying in formation. A crowd of people watches from the airfield. The final L/S shows two planes flying at sunset.
