Santos Dumont's Airship (1903)Documentary, Short · 1 February 1903
This intrepid navigator of the air puts his craft through its passes for the motion picture machine. The view was taken at Monaco shortly before the accident which resulted in both airship and navigator dropping into the Bay of Monaco. The airship is seen issuing under its own power from the shed under which it is housed and then rises swiftly in the air and is operated forwards and backwards, the huge fan wheels and working of the motor being plainly seen.
