    Good footage of great tangled masses of airship structures after zeppelins crash in France.

  • Description

    Zeppelin Wrecks In France.

    Pan across a huge tangled mass of wire trellis on ground after zeppelin crash. Soldiers and civilians walk about, looking at the mess. A soldier directs water from a fire hose on the wreck.

    More panning shots of wreckage - not sure if this is the same airship or another. Great shot of the nose frame of a zeppelin sticking up from the ground. Men on the ground below show how enormous it is.

    Cut to footage of soldiers or policemen marching across a field as an officer takes the salute.

    Back to people picking through the debris of an airship wreck.
