My father played in the movie. His name was John S. Lawrence III. There is a glider that is used in the film. My sisters,father and I built the glider and it worked perfectly! There is a scene where the glider is supposed to crash. My father was at the controls and at the last minute causes the glider to pull up in time there by averting a crash. The glider was built to exact specifications and of the same material of the original. It hangs now in the Manteo Public Library in Manteo North Carolina. It has hung there for there for years and is still in excellent condition. All of the cloth was hand sewn partially by children's hands and partly by my father. All of the frame was hand carved and held together with eyelets. It was flown with wires attached to control it.
