• Short Summary

    Drogue (trailer target) attached to plane is used for naval shooting practice.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "TRAILER TARGET"

    Various shots of a drogue being made ready and attached to a biplane. Three men open a box, take it out and attach it to a plane. The plane takes off and when over the sea the drogue is released and it is towed on a long line behind the plane for shooting practice. When the drogue is brought back to the airfield, we see many holes in it. Several shots of the naval barrage shooting at the drogue.
