• Short Summary

    Pilot Charles Barnard flies to Morocco and back in record time.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "To Africa and back in 2 days - Capt. C. D. Barnard in a Puss-Moth Monoplane flies from London to Tangier and back in 23 hours!!"

    Presumably London.

    A monoplane comes in to land at an airport. It comes to a halt on the tarmac and the pilot is greeted by journalists.

    The pilot / aviator Captain Charles Barnard is interviewed about his flight to Tangiers in Morocco. Three cheers are raised for Charles.

    N.B. I think the puss moth was built by De Havilland.
