The clip opens with Wilbur checking the launching rail for the flyer. After attaching wheels to the plane, the flyer is moved to the launching rail. Workers pull on a rope to hoist the launching weight. The engines are started. As the weight drops, it boosts the Flyer into the air. The flyer then gains altitude, and makes a pass by the photographer.
