Machine guns being tested on French aircraft during World War I. Brief shot of Eddie Rickenbacker in his Spad XIII

Opening scene shows a French Salmson 2 aircraft with front wheels chocked in a concrete pit and its tail supported to maintain the aircraft level during test firing of its machine gun. Mechanics surround the plane. Its engine is running. A mechanic leans over the Vickers .303 caliber machine gun installed at the front cockpit. (It is synchronized so as to fire through the propeller while the engine is running, however it is not being fired at this time.) Scene shifts to closeup view from front cockpit of engine with cowling covers removed. Gun sight and a scope are seen. Camera pans down revealing top of the cockpit instrument panel where needle/ball, airspeed, clock, and some engine instruments are visible. Glimpse of a side-mounted Vickers machine gun firing on a French Breguet 14. Next, Lieutenant Eddie Rickenbacker (prior to October, 1918, when he was promoted to Captain) is seen in cockpit of his parked Spad XIII aircraft. He manipulates the two Vickers machine guns installed on his plane (but does not fire them). Scene shifts to the French Breguet 14, seen firing machine gun, earlier. It is being towed backwards, up and out of the testing pit. (Minor Note: Rickenbacker's 94th Aero Squadron had their Neuports replaced by Spads in July 1918, so the brief scene showing him was shot between July and October, 1918)
