Ground crews struggle to control an amphibian blimp being threatened by winds near the water at St. Malo, France. Aviator Barra Sturzt is visible above the cabin of the blimp, waving his arms and trying to direct the efforts of ground crews. Members of the French Auto Club, which organized the seaplane competition, are seen talking together. (At end, a few frames show several club members standing with a military officer in dress uniform with sword. To their left (right in photo) an aviator in flight gear, including helmet, walks toward a biplane parked on rails at edge of water.)
