A flvina machine shaped something like the half of a box kits may easily bs constructed with this material nnd, as it would weigh only about forty-five pounds and Its cig ge.st dimension would be only twenty-five feet, it could be readily car ried. The operator would take this glid er to a hilltop, take n good running start, lift his feet off the ground and "let her go."
