A look at an early helicopter as it takes off and hovers unsteadily above the ground.
Item title reads - Paris. "The Helicopter". Weird looking - contrivance with which inventor has just succeeded in rising horizontally.
Shot of the early helicopter hovering above the ground and veering from side to side, people run about underneath it trying to control it. It looks like a big oblong balloon with little propellors underneath and a wire frame. Various shots of the helicopter as it hovers unsteadily, a man is on the frame and others are running after it.
