Test of an airplane snatching a man from the ground via the Adams "goal post" aerial pickup system.

Three men stand near a simplified "goal post" version of Dr. Lytle Schuyler Adams' Aerial pickup system set up for testing at the property of Richard Archibold in Thomasville, Georgia. (Archibold collaborated with Dr. Adams to simplify and test his aerial pickup system for use by expeditions of the New York Museum of Science, in remote areas of the world.) The resulting simplified "goal post" version, consisting of two tall bamboo poles with a line draped between them, is seen erected in a field on the Archibold property in Thomasville, Georgia. The camera is recording the event in slow motion. An airplane (probably a Travel Air monoplane) flies low over the bamboo poles. It trails a long cable with a hook, that snags the line between the poles. As the cable and line grow taut, a man seated in a chair, facing backwards, is seen being lofted into the air by the towing airplane. He is clearly silhouetted against the sky, as he travels aloft. The bamboo poles bend back from the flight path, as they snap back (in slow motion) from the pull of the pickup.

Test of an airplane picking up a package via the Adams "goal post" aerial pickup system

A simplified "goal post" version of Dr. Lytle Schuyler Adams' Aerial pickup system is set up for testing at the property of Richard Archibold in Thomasville Georgia. (Archibold, of the New York Museum of Science, had prevailed upon Dr. Adams to simplify his aerial pickup system to facilitate its use in remote areas such as jungles. This "goal post" version being tested, was the result.) Two tall bamboo poles are seen planted in the ground at the edge of a road. A line is looped between the poles. The camera, recording in slow motion, captures the lower part of an airplane, trailing a long cable with a hook that extends down and passes between the bamboo poles, snagging the line between them. The cable and line grow taut and a large package is seen being dragged between the poles and upward behing the towing airplane. The bamboo poles appear bent away from the direction of flight, as they are captured snapping backwards in slow motion. (Judging by its landing gear, the aircraft being used appears to be a Travel Air monoplane.)
