- A girl flies around the world -
Exciting world travel report of the famous aviatrix Elly Beinhorn (Rosemeyer), with many pictures from all parts of the world.
The flight in her Klemm KL-20 airplane took her from Germany via southern Asia to Port Darwin in Australia. Then her plane was dismantled and shipped to New Zealand, then Panama where it was reassembled.
From there she flew via the Cordilleras to the east coast of South America, arriving in Buenos Aires. The plane was dismantled once more in Brazil and shipped to Germany. Beinhorn arrived in Berlin in June 1932.
