  • Short Summary

    Aircraft stunts - men stand on the top wing of a biplane and have a boxing match.

  • Description

    Intertitle reads: "Some folks are not satisfied with this world, but want to hurry off to the next. Here's one..."

    M/S of man climbing on to top wing of a biplane. L/S of biplane taxiing towards the camera, then another L/S of biplane as it takes off and flies away into the distance with the stunt artist on top. Air to air shot of the plane high above the ground - docks visible below. Various shots of the plane in flight. It flies close to skyscrapers. Location looks to be New York. Plane flies under a bridge.

    Intertitle reads: "But when he induced a friend to climb on top and box him... our Cameraman slid down for more air." Two men stand on the top wing and have a pretend boxing match - they are quite a long way from our camera so not very clear what is going on. Various shots of the two men fighting. Closer shot as the plane flows close to our camera. One man appears to be giving the other a piggy back ride. He repeatedly throws his arm up into the air.
