"Excellent 'wing' shots of the Rockies. Footage of vintage by plane and pilot and ground crew."

"Shots of High River airfield in Alberta, of aircraft, of hangars and shops. An Armstrong-Whithworth Siskin is rolled out of the hangar and started by means of mechanical starter mounted on an automobile chassis. Another aircraft is gassed up. The pilot climbs into the Siskin and takes off. Several sequences on mountains seen from the air, High River base, Castle Mountain, Lake Louise, the Ten Peaks, the Bow River, Banff Spring Hotel, Mount Assiniboine, and Kananaskis Lake, etc. Captain Carter, the pilot, turns and waves to the camera from the front cockpit. Final shots of plane landing at High River airfield, as seen from the back cockpit."
