    Full title reads: "The Welsh Harp. First Water Glider in the World! British of course, piloted by Mr Lowe Wylde ... makes highly successful first trip."

    Shots of a glider flying boat being towed across the water by a small motor boat.

    CU Mr Lowe-Wylde has a quick chat with the driver of the boat about how fast to start towing. He puts on his flying helmet and climbs into the cockpit of his glider plane.

    The plane comes back down for a very gentle landing on the water.
