Description by

The Flying Fool (1925, B&W, Silent): Dare-devil aviator Donald Daring, "The Flying Fool," is late for church and misses his own wedding. In his absence, his best man Jack Bryan makes off with his fiance, Wanda, and a diamond necklace stolen from her family. He whisks her and the stolen gems aboard his yacht and speeds out toward the open sea. Donald is Wanda's last hope for rescue. Undaunted, he takes to the air and flies out in hot pursuit! Beautifully photographed on location with spectacular action sequences on land sea and air, The Flying Fool is a lost aerial gem.

The Cloud Patrol (1929, B&W, Silent): Ace pilot Russ Farrell of The Border Patrol, the crack aerial division of The Army Air Service, is called in to investigate a disturbance in the mining town of Rayfield. Outside agitators have stirred up the miners to seize the mine by force. Russ flies in with guns blazing in a desperate attempt to save his sweetheart, Nancy Rayfield, and her father who are surrounded by armed gunmen. With extraordinary flying stunts, fine location photography and plenty of action, Cloud Patrol is a classic example of the silent aerial adventure.

BONUS contents include Early 20's Aviation, Aviation 1928, Aviation 1929 and Lindbergh. Highlights of these rare short subjects include bizarre early aircraft designs, advances in flight and the world-wide triumph of Charles Lindbergh.
