Russian air-cadets being trained at the Royal Flying Corps' No 1 School of Military Aeronautics, at Coley Park Aerodrome, Reading, Berkshire, England, during World War 1. Cadets march with their officer to a tarpaulin covered hangar. Next they are seen inside the hangar, removing a double wing from a bi-wing aircraft. . They sit, wearing earphones, at a table outdoors, learning wireless telegraphy. They examine the parts of a Clerget 9B nine-cylinder rotary aircraft engine, and sit for a lecture about inline engines. The instructor holds up a bearing and connecting rods from the inline engine. They look at an aeronautical chart and take notes. Cadets climb aboard a canvas-covered army truck and stand in it. They wave as it drives away.
