• Short Summary

    Col. Hutchinson talks about the potential danger to his children in their failed Atlantic flight.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "There are two sides to every question! Here's Col. Hutchinson's - of 'The Flying Family' - point of view on much discussed flight."

    Colonel George Hutchinson with his wife and daughters, Kathryn and Janet stand before the camera. Colonel Hutchinson wants to address the criticism that has been placed upon him for putting his family at risk by attempting to fly his family across the Atlantic. He says that his children have been in the air for over 1,000 hours and have visited the 48 states of America and parts of Canada and Mexico without mishap.

    Pull out to wider shot. He describes the very bad ice storm that they encountered in their Atlantic flight. And how it forced them down near Greenland.

    He hopes that people will realise that his children are safer in the air than in any other form of transport.
