Summary: English language version of a French film on the wreck of Zeppelin LZ77 at Revigny on 21st February 1916.
Description: The film starts with a brief scene of the Zeppelin apparently about to crash (in fact an early scene of Zeppelin L7 landing under difficulties). A French 75mm motorised anti-aircraft gun takes aim. Then the wreckage of the Zeppelin, completely burnt out, on the ground. The camera shows the wreckage, dwelling heavily on the charred corpses of the crew lying among the pieces of metal. Adjutant Gramling and Private Pennetier, who shot the Zeppelin down, help to dismantle it.
