The daily trip of one of the huge passenger planes in the English Channel Service. Arrived at the flying field we watch the plane being brought from its hangar and see its folding wings spread and secured in position for flight. Ten passengers enter and take seats in the roomy cabin. Each is allowed fifty pounds of baggage.
Approaching London we have a marvelous view of the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Bridge with its Big Ben Tower and the other prominent buildings, which as we rapidly pass them stand out with stereoscopic effect. On we fly over the English farming country with its hedges and well tilled fields until over Beachy Head, we have our last glimpse of England. Then tea is served, and in a few minutes having passed a return plane. La Belle France comes into view.
Again we pass over a wonderful countryside consisting of small, intensively cultivated farms, and for a long distance we follow a famous old road built centuries ago by Caesar and still in constant use. Then we reach our destination, and after an easy landing we alight in Paris only two and a half hours after leaving London.
