From the collection of:
At the Red Devils' HQ a small crowd of people gather around an instructor, as he shows them around including the display of a Red Devils’ parachute, hanging triumphantly from the ceiling. But a tour of the grounds is no more than build-up for the main event: a parachute demonstration! The Devils launch themselves one by one into the sky. The film concludes with an exhilarating POV sequence from the window of a plane.
