Mr C.D. Barnard, of the Elms, Watford, made a non-stop flight, from Epsom to Glasgow, on Wednesday, to carry films of the Derby.
Seven aeroplanes were chartered from the de Havilland Aircraft Company, and Mr Barnard started at 6.15pm, dropping by parachute, developed films at Nottingham, Leicester, Leeds etc, and landing at Glasgow at 10.15.
The film was shown in the City at 10.30 and was received enthusiastically.
Mr Barnard expects to be in Romania next week on another Continental tour.
