After the set up in the first part that felt like a filler. This second part sees Compo trying to hand glide. Right at the end of the fifth series of Last of the Summer Wine, writer Roy Clarke has stumbled on his winning formula.

Less of the old men reminiscing and passing the time. Instead, get Compo to do mindless stunts, preferably in silly costumes and it all goes wrong with hilarious results.

Wally Batty builds the hand glider which looks like a giant pigeon costume. Clegg and Foggy use various means to get him to fly including trying to launch him from a barn, via a bicycle and then from a van. Wally and Sid are in a boat ready to rescue Compo.

There is a terrific sight gag as a bystander reads a book called The Hanging Tree, looks up and watches in startled amazement the silhouettes of the regulars taking Compo to a similar tree as portrayed on the cover of the book with a coiled length of rope in his hand.
