AUTOGIRO HALTS FLEEING ‘BANDIT’ CAR (Jun, 1933)
AUTOGIRO HALTS FLEEING ‘BANDIT’ CAR
To test an autogiro in a motor bandit chase, a driverless car recently was sent speeding across a field near Bryn Athyn, Pa. A windmill plane took off in pursuit, carrying Chief of Police Theodore Hollowell. Using a sub-machine gun, as at left, he peppered the car until a direct hit disabled it. Tracer bullets set the car afire. The end of the chase is shown below, with the autogiro about to land.
