Speed test runs by 'Budweiser' SOS (Speed Of Sound) rocket powered car at Edwards Air Force Base at California. Men stand near vehicles. Mountain ranges in the background. The 3-wheeled land vehicle is driven by Mr. Stan Barrett. It is powered by a rocket engine. This run is the fastest in the series, being clocked at 731 miles per hour and recorded on camera number 745.
Heavy cloud of smoke erupts. Then nothing. A while later, another burst of smoke and the rocket car accelerates rapidly. Suddenly, it emits a burst of white hot flames that burns for a few seconds as it passes the camera. The car disappears in mist and fog (local weather condition).
