Early experimental failures in airplane development. Lawrence Sperry and his "Messenger" airplane

Film showing early history of flight with many early unsuccessful flying machines. As Igor Sikorsky speaks, in the background, about such earlier failures, the first scene shows a early 1900s seven wing airplane, with its propeller turning, being pushed by several men. Suddenly the the entire thing collapses into a heap, as the men run to safety. They quickly return to check on the occupant. Next, an experimental four-rotor helicopter is seen lifting above the ground, successfully, but not otherwise controllable. Then a contraption (labeled "Sky Car") employs a pulsating umbrella. It jumps up and down but does not accomplish anything else. A tricycle gear contraption, using an array of sails, and displaying the number, 691, moves along under power, but does not ever leave the ground. A helicopter of sorts, with several different size rotors falls sideways, as the pilot is adjusting it. He steps away to safety. Another glimpse of the "Sky Car." A wing-flapping contraption that does nothing else. Aviation pioneer, Lawrence Sperry, moves his early biplane up to a gasoline pump to refuel. He holds the fuel hose to his gas tank while another man pumps the fuel. Next, his airplane taxis along a public road, followed by a motorcyclist. The aircraft takes off. Sperry piloting his small single-place bi-plane "Messenger" aircraft, is seen flying above the U.S. Capitol dome, on March 22, 1922. Next, he lands on the Capitol Plaza and quickly turns the aircraft so it actually ascends several Capitol steps, before rolling back to park. Sperry climbs from the cockpit and is greeted by policemen and officials who surround him and congratulate him. (Sperry perished flying across the English Channel in 1924.) View of the Great Dome on Building 10 at the campus of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Dr. Jerome Hunsaker, pioneer aeronautical engineer and educator, is seen in a laboratory.
