A French Breguet 14 biplane bomber taxis around to the left and lines up with other aircraft parked at the Colombey-les-Belles Airdrome in France during World War 1 . (Blue-white-red vertical paint stripes on their tails identify these as French aircraft.) Several Breguet 14 biplane bombers take off, one after the other, from the field. A motorcycle with sidecar and a loaded truck drive beneath planes taking off. A change of scene shows a gunner still in the rear cockpit of a De Havilland DH-4 bomber that has just nosed over. Its propeller is buried in the ground. Tricolor roundels on its wings (blue-white-red, from center outward) identify this as a French airplane. A number of pilots and mechanics gather around as the gunner begins climbing down from his cockpit.
