Mild blue yonder beckons as Boy Scouts from Troop 106 of Hornell, New York, assemble their own sailplane. It will fly only after a careful Government inspection. The boys may soar alone at fourteen-two years be fore they may drive. Young lass at right finds the V-tail of a parked sailplane makes a comfortable seat as she waits for Daddy to come back to earth. Metal birds are born at the Schweizer Aircraft plant near Elmira. Technician in foreground equips a 2-32. The firm sells glid ers ready to fly or as kits for back-yard builders.
