Activities at a French airbase during World War I. DH-4 and Spad XIII aircraft.
France Date:1918 Duration:1 min 40 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Camera pans along a road and railroad, show a truck convoy moving on the road past camouflaged barracks and hangars of a French airbase in World War 1. De Havilland DH-4s and other aircraft are parked on the field. An American and a French officer walk together across the field. Mechanics and helpers work to restrain a Spad XIII moving with engine running. Several of them hold it back by pulling on wing struts. Finally the pilot (or mechanic) in the cockpit stops the plane, and several other men catch up with it.
