THIS TOY AIRPLANE DOES EVERYTHING BUT FLY
At three years of age, Sam Swindle, of Athens, Ga., is “pilot” of a miniature airplane. It was built for him by his father, a master mechanic. Though its clipped wings make it impossible for it to leave the earth, the tiny machine actually travels along the ground under the power of a small gasoline engine and gives the boy all the thrills of real flying.
