This brings back memories…

I spent a lot of time one summer trying to build my own glider as a kid.

“Designing”, stealing materials, building. My initial plans called for a bi-plane styled rig. That proved too much work and way too heavy.

I settled for a sorta delta wing configuration.

I’m grateful I did not jump from a similar height.

    He will try again. He was laughing as loud as the other boys.

    More authentic than the “funny” attempts found in old weekly B+W newsreel clips often tacked onto the start of many “modern” aviation documentaries. It was a well kept secret for probably half a century that these “crazy inventor” items were almost 100% completely bogus efforts stuck together by the film companies hired help.
