  • Description

    Full title reads: "Itford. Sailplaning for Everyone Soon! Herr Kronfield stays up "as long as he likes" in his engineless plane."

    Itford.

    Various parts of a glider are put together on a hill top. A man wearing a flying helmet climbs into the cockpit. (On the side of the plane is written 'Wein'). He is strapped into the cockpit.

    The glider is moved into position and attached to a catapult. (It looks like it is being fired with a large elastic band).

    Various shots of the glider flying high in the air. It come close to landing but then another updraft lifts it away. The glider finally comes down to land.

    CU Herr Kronfield.
