UPDATE: Edward F. Andrews in a glider towed by an automobile at Daytona Beach in 1911

This photo shows Edward F. Andrews in a glider towed by an automobile at Daytona Beach in 1911.

Mr. Andrews had this comment about his experience:

“I have found this to be dangerous. A machine, which if free would be perfectly safe, is made as erratic as a child’s kite by the attachment of a rope. I, for one, shall seek other means of getting into the air.”
