• Short Summary

    Strange aircraft is demonstrated.

  • Description

    South Bend, Indiana, United States of America.

    "Here's a new idea which may revolutionise flying."

    Inventor Dr Sneider (sp?) is seen standing beside his new invention "the flying wing". It is a strange looking aircraft that has a fan-like wing which fills in the gap between the ordinary wings and the tail of the aircraft. It looks very odd and obviously didn't catch on. We see the plane take off, fly through the air and land.

    The aircraft seen here is the Arup S-2, the only example of its type ever built.

    "Inventor Dr Sneider (sp?)" - the man's name is Cloys Snyder.
