  • Description

    Zeppelin wreck in street.

    A Zeppelin airship wreck in a street in France (?). As usual in these wrecks; it makes for weird looking wreckage; like some bizarre sci-fi influenced junk sculpture. CUs of parts of wrecked German Zeppelin. Sometimes the fine framework of the airship looks like a bunch of hay or tangled string.

    Pan along the wreckage to 2 French soldiers beside it poking about. CU part of propellor. A tank buried underneath the tangle of frame. CU same. GV same again; then pan right all the way to the end of the wreck; several men stand in BG. DS of wreck looks like a long white cylinder going through the tangled yarn. Pan right more soldiers exploring. CU more of frame; with stream of water spraying on it. Pan right to a man holding a hose; directing it on the wreckage.

    Crash; accident; airship; blimp. World War One. disasters; aviation.
