Description

Amateur family film showing scenes from an aircraft, with views of the sea and a sprawling city as the plane lands at an airport. Views follow of a rural valley with mountains, farmland and houses dotting the landscape; returning to panoramic shots of the valley and a bay in the distance. The family are seen visiting a landmark with a signpost that points to many destinations. There is a brief shot of an urban street with traffic, returning to views of a rural farmstead. The next scene shows a series of night-time shots with illuminated street signs, cutting to daytime shots of a rural valley landscape.
