    Item title reads: " Death Missed By Inches. Coolheaded and skilful handling by pilot during tests with new catapult launching device, averts disaster."

    United States of America (USA).

    M/S of a ship in dock. There are Stars and Stripes flags flying. On the far side, the seaplane can be seen, being swung round into position on a catapult ramp. The catapult device is fired somehow, and the seaplane is seen to shoot off. It launches, but bumps over the water of the bay without taking off. Finally it achieves lift off, climbing into the air, turning and banking.
