Intertitle: "U.S. NAVY AT BATTLE PRACTICE. Pathe Camera Man secures wonderful and exclusive pictures".
Aerial top shot of a battleship. A bi-plane takes off from the run way on the deck of the ship, panning shot follows the aeroplane. L/S of the battleship, taken from sea level, as it fires its guns - an enormous cloud of black smoke billows out. M/S of an explosion out at sea - mines exploding? Various L/Ss, from different angles, of the guns being fired and explosions seen out at sea. L/S of a barrage balloon anchored to the bow of the ship (it is probable that the aerial shots were taken from the balloon). More great aerial shots of the battleship, good view of the guns.
