We are at the old Hellinikon International Airport of Athens and specifically in the parking lot where passengers and employees are moving at a fast pace. We watch a Douglas DC-6B airplane with the propellers of the engines pointing towards us and a Sud Aviation SE 210 Caravelle of the MEA (Middle East Airlines)filling its tanks with fuel from a Mobil tanker.
Afterwards, we see shots from the airport lounge and then the lens follows the taxiing of a Douglas DC-6B with registration number SX-DAE. This aircraft, a year later would crash on Mount Paneio near Keratea and would cast a gloom over the families of the 90 victims who travelled in it.
But now, it’s taxiing slowly as it passes the MEA's Sud Aviation SE 210 Caravelle to get out of the lens' sight and give his place in its “twin” from which we watch passengers disembark. Afterwards, we see shots from the taxiing of the Sud Aviation SE 210 Caravelle of MEA and then shots from the airport lounge.
It is getting dark now and behind the airplane’s tail we can see the passengers as shadows as they board. The film closes with the take-off of the plane and with the lens leaving behind the lights of the airport and the city.
