Activities at the U.S.First Air Depot in Colombey-les-Belles, France during World War 1. A Spad XIII biplane fighter is parked in front of a canvas hangar, containing two French airplanes (painted with blue-white-red tail fin flashing). Mechanics pull the prop through on the Spad but have trouble starting it. Two of them take turns and finally get the engine started. A group of mechanics and soldiers push a Spad XIII up to and into a tattered Bessoneau hangar with an officer supervising. Row of Salmson 2A2s in background.
