  • Short Summary

    Aeroplane flies through Tower Bridge. London.

  • Description

    Tower Bridge. London.

    GV Tower Bridge on the River Thames. 5 secs bridge alone; then a small aeroplane flies through it -- over bottom part and under the upper. Then an amazing aerial tracking shot from the plane as it flies through again-looking back toward bridge -- Only sky; then the top of the bridge as plane flies under it; top of bridge receding at same time becoming more of bridge; as plane flies away and upward. (Or if played backward; looks like aerial shot approaching bridge. Either way it really gives sensation of flight). GV bridge with aeroplane flying through again. A lot of automobile and truck traffic on bridge.
