Overview

This Tiger Club film starts with biplanes 'bombing' a small car as it weaves about on the ground. Crowds are seen arriving at Redhill Aerodrome where a variety of aircraft put on an aerial show mainly involving fast fly-pasts at low altitude.The aircraft are mostly Super Tigers, a development of the famous Tiger Moth. A large biplane lumbers into the sky and drops a parachute. The film ends with a family posing beside their car.
