  • Description

    No title, paperwork reads - Bird like plane that flies. Inventor P. Schill successfully tries out novel "baby" plane. America, (USA, U.S.A.)

    M/S of two men stood together, M/S as one tests the flaps on the wings. M/S of the wings flapping up and down on the aeroplane.

    Note: this item does not seem to be about P. Schill and his aeroplane as the people and 'plane differ to those in items with the same title in G 1555 and G 1556 on *PM0770* and *PM0772* respectively. The people and 'plane in this are unidentified.
