Summary: Aircraft recognition film describing the Curtiss C-46 Commando aircraft.
Description: The film begins by showing a model of the C46 in flight. It then goes on to show footage of the Himalayas and China, with a Chinese soldier looking up and recognising the aircraft. A model is shown in plan form and from head-on and wing views. The importance of the change in shape from different viewing angles is stressed throughout. The model of the aircraft is used to indicate more detail as it emphasises every direction and position.
