Ellsworth, Maine, United States of America.
M/S of an aeroplane being wheeled around in a circle on the spot by several men in a field. M/S of two men, presumably Leo Lesan and Jim Crane, standing by their plane; one of them adjusts some of the wing shutters. M/Ss of the plane show the wings flapping up and down, making the whole plane shake about alarmingly! Then it starts to fall apart, but the wings carry on flapping, rather feebly.
