Early primary glider launched from hilltop in the United States
United States USA Date:1922 Duration:16 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Film leads with slate reading: "How the Wrights learned to fly--the motorless, man-carrying glider." A group of people stand on a hilltop, watching as two men launch a primary glider with a downhill running start. The glider consists of tubular frame tapering to nearly a point at the empennage. It is equipped with wheels, and the pilot sits upright with legs extended straight ahead.. The glider has a single high wing. It rises quickly and flies above ground for a good distance, appearing to approach the ground as it moves downhill.
