• First Aerial Movie?

Ever wonder what it was like to fly in the Wright Flyer? Now you can see for yourself.

In 1909 the Wright Brothers demonstrated their Flyer in France. The Société Générale des Cinématographes Eclipse was there to film the action, and they mounted a camera on the aircraft. The result was, as far as I know, the very first movie taken from an aricraft.

Enjoy this rare silent film thanks to the Europa Film Treasures.

  1. That's neat! A little touchy as far as pitch control, isn't it? I'm guessing that's the first cat shot on film as well.
