    The title card details the location as Weymouth, which helps identify this clip as originating during the Fleet Review that took place in Weymouth in May 1912.

    During this Review, Charles Samson became the first pilot ever to take off from a warship that was on the move. The plane visible here is likely, thought not certain to be, Samson's Short biplane.
