  • Short Summary

    Aviators Baron von Hunefeld, Captain Koehl and Major Fitzmaurice arrive in Greenly Island after their Atlantic flight.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "The end of an Epic Flight - The Bremen and her intrepid airmen on Greenly Island."

    Labrador, Greenland / Canada.

    M/S of The Bremen, the aeroplane that Baron von Hunefeld, Captain Koehl and Major Fitzmaurice flew from Ireland across the Atlantic to Greenly Island, stationed in a field near a lighthouse; there is patchy snow on the ground. L/S of a group of locals standing with some dogs near a campfire, near to the plane.

    M/S of one of the fliers - Baron von Hunefeld (?), talking to another man outside a hut. Two other men look at a propellor that has been removed from the plane; the end of it has been bent over. M/S of a man cleaning the plane's cockpit cover.

    Intertitle reads: "Capt. Koehl... pilot, his forehead was bruised in the landing."
    C/U of one of the fliers - I think this is actually Hunefeld, not Koehl - this man wears an eye glass / monocle and smokes a cigarette.

    Intertitle reads: "Baron von Hunefeld... leader of the great adventure."
    C/U of another flier - I think this is Koehl - he has a mark on his forehead! Or it could be Fitzmaurice - it is very difficult to tell.

    Note: there was probably a shot of Fitzmaurice at the end of this story - now missing.
