Summary: Short silent film of a Rotabuggy trial, being towed by a Vickers Wellington, about 1949.
Description: The film seems to have been made by the AFEE (Airborne Forces Experimental Establishment) at Beaulieu about 1949 and shows a Rotabuggy taking off, circling the airfield and landing. It is towed by a Wellington and the experiment is filmed from the ground and out of the turret of the aircraft. A Rotabuggy is an early helicopter system attached to a jeep.
