Ryan M-1 airplane aloft. A parachutist leaves the aircraft and descends with parachute fully opened. Men in an airplane cabin take pictures with motion picture camera. A huge parachute, large enough to support an airplane, deploys from a biplane, in flight. (It may have been manufactured by San Diego parachute maker, Jimmy Russell.) The parachuting airplane swings widely as it descends beneath the chute.
