• Short Summary

    An auto-gyro is unpacked and assembled - wife of the owner goes for a little spin in it.

  • Description

    Blackbushe, Surrey.

    Cyril Rose - a Berkshire businessman has spent £1,000 on an American designed auto-gyro. We see Cyril (who has a gorgeous cream car with fins) unpack his auto-gyro which he has towed to the aerodrome on the back of his car. His wife and son help him to construct the auto-gyro. Gregory Rose - the son checks the craft then mum climbs in. The auto-gyro is towed along behind the car - brilliant! Looks like mum is having lots of fun.

    Mrs Rose isn't named and the narrator cracks a joke about her being a woman driver who won't attempt flying without a tow rope as she still has her L-plates.

    Cuts exist - see other records.
