Prototype C.30 (G-ACFI) Cierva wingless autogiro taking off at Hanworth Air Park (London Air Park), England. A man runs across the field, past the semi-hovering autogiro. The aircraft passes over the grass field, upon which large white circles have been circumscribed. one of them is marked by a smoking flare. As the autogiro approaches it, a man runs alongside the slow moving autogiro and hooks a satchel onto a line suspended from the craft. Aviator in front seat reels the satchel into the autogiro. The craft flies away, and then shuts down its regular engine and descends and lands on the smoke marked spot, with its rotor blades autorotating.
