A group of men roll the Bellanca high wing monoplane, "Columbia,"from a hangar at Harbour Grace, Newfoundland, Canada. Pilot,Captain Erroll Boyd, and navigator,Harry Connor, stand in front of the airplane, discussing their aeronautical chart.

With engine running, a well wisher shakes hands with Erroll Boyd through the plane window and then steps back as the "Columbia" taxis ahead. The aircraft begins takeoff on a rough, rocky field. (It didn't succeed and they had to try again with manual help to keep the airplane's tail from digging into the ground.) Scene shifts to the aircraft airborne overhead. (Note: fuel problems forced them to make an emergency landing at Tresco, the Scilly Islands, off Cornwall, England, before finally arriving at Croydon.)
