    New York City, United States of America (USA).

    L/S of Manhattan skyline. Low angled shot of skyscraper, pan down to show low building with words 'Downtown Skyport'. L/S of seaplane touching down in New York Bay. A man inside the Skyport building writes on piece of paper. C/U of paper - he puts a tick next to name 'Wilton Lloyd Smith'. Presumably Smith is the millionaire businessman who own the plane.
