U.S. Army and U.S. Navy officers along with large group of sailors, pose beneath a B-class and a C-class Navy airships in a hangar, at Fort Tilden, Rockaway, Queens, New York City. The B-class airship on the right is removed from the hangar. Then, the C-clas is moved out of the hangar and prepares to fly. View of two aviators, dressed in leather flying gear with helmets and goggles, are seen in the Gondola, which looks like an open boat. One of the aviators stands by a motion picture camera fastened to the gondola. The airship is moved into position and slowly takes off from the field, with several crew members visible in the open gondola.
