    Mount Wallberg, Germany.

    Parts of a glider is carried across snow clad mountain valley.

    Men carry wings and fuselage of glider high up in the mountains. Good shots as they move the various parts up Mount Wallberg.

    The men move the glider (now put together) into position for launch.

    C/U as the pilot climbs into the cockpit.

    Long shot of the glider as it hurtles down the side of the mountain, which is covered with snow. Just as it looks dangerously close to hitting the pine trees it lifts into the air.

    The glider flies off into the distance.
