? (The cameraman)
Ordinary people (Themselves)
Silent experimental documentary (like Koyaanisqatsi fifty years later) of Dziga Vertov.
On the right edge, a mechanic clings the propeller. He stands on the end of the axial skid of an Avro 504 or more probably an Avrushka U-1 (more 700 units of this indigenous copy were built during the 1920s).
Aircraft are of the Directorate of the Workers-Peasants Red Army Air Forces which later became the Soviet Air Force.
Perhaps Polikarpov R-1 or R-2 (copy of DH.9A built in Soviet Union) ?
