    Demonstrations of a light weight plane with folding wings.

  • Description

    Lympne, Kent.

    Title: "Baby Plane Trials - Two-Seater Light Aeroplanes ... which can be flown for halfpenny a mile ... prove great success at R.A.C. Tests".

    M/S of a bizarre looking aeroplane being wheeled out of a hangar - the wings are folded back so it looks like a giant fly. M/S of the plane being wheeled onto the run way - it is so small and light it only takes two men to push it.

    M/S of the plane inside the hangar, a man unfolds its wings so it looks like a conventional biplane. M/S of a man standing in front of the plane, he gives the propeller a sharp tug to start it. Low angled L/S of the plane in flight.
