• Short Summary

    American Army test new device for viewing out of airship.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "America 'The Sub-Cloud Car' U.S. Army tests novel sky scout."

    United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of airship / dirigible. Interior shots of gondola. A small basket device is lowered from gondola. Pathe cameraman is in the basket and takes shots of the airship from below.

    Air to air shots of the blimp. (The idea is for the airship to fly above the clouds while the basket hangs beneath for scouting purposes.)

    Shots of basket hanging hundreds of feet below the airship. Shots from basket as it is winched up back to the gondola.
