• Short Summary

    Aviator C.W.A. Scott and his co-pilot Campbell Black fly from Mildenhall to Australia.

  • Description

    Reel 4. Various shots of the KLM aeroplane. Men prepare the propeller. A child thumps a wheel. A family pose in front of the plane for photographs. Men are seen coming out of the plane - the aviators presumably. The aviators stand around drinking a toast to each other. The Warner Bros. Comet is seen. "Roscoe Turner - advisor to Warner Bros. Studios" is also written on the side of the plane. Shots of the aviators. Scott drives his car away again. He takes his hat off to the camera as he leaves. Crowds of people in the streets. Integral sound. Procession of horseback riders. Open topped car - Scott and Black wave. Other aviators follow in another car. The location is probably Melbourne. Cheers from the crowds. End title.

    See other records.

    Note: intermittent sound, some integral sound, some commentary. Although film has opening credits and end title it does not seem to be a final edited version.

    Unable to discover Christian names of C.W.M. Scott from records here.
