German soldiers walking in destroyed railroad yard. Wing of an airplane in a destroyed Polish air base. Skeletal remains of polish aircraft and hangars. Several Polish airplanes, damaged, but still recognizable. Sign on a hangar reads: "Aeroklub-Bydgoski" (Aero club of Bydgoszcz, or, in German: Bromberg). German soldiers occupying the hangar clean their rifles. They handle supplies and camp on the grounds. (One soldier shaves outdoors, next to stacked rifles.) A soldier at a field stove. German troops with shovels, fill in bomb craters and repair surface of airfield. Aerial view of the airfield with German planes parked. German soldiers march in formation in front of airplanes.
