  • Short Summary

    A new 100 mph aeroplane, built by Ford, is seen, along with it's dashing pilot.

  • Description

    Full titles read: '"We shall all be flying now!" - First pictures of the Ford 100 mile-an-hour... 50 to the gallon...36 h.p. "Flivver of the skies".'

    United States of America.

    M/S of a Ford propellor aeroplane taxiing across an airfield after landing. M/S of a rather dashing pilot with a thin moustache looking out from the cockpit; a small crowd stands around the plane. M/S shows men grouped around the propellor and looking at the plane; one man taps the wing with his hand as if testing the structure.

    M/S of the controls in the cockpit. M/S of the plane being lifted off the ground by the men - presumably to show how light it is? Nice L/S of the men standing in a line behind the wings - perhaps they worked on the production of it.
