  • Short Summary

    When an oil tanker is launched, many are hurt by the enormous wave it creates.

  • Description

    Jacksonville, United States of America.

    Intertitle: "A MIGHTY SPLASH. Many spectators hurt by huge wave, as Oil Tank 'Moffit' ships off the ways".

    L/S of a large oil tanker on a platform floating on the sea. The tanks slides off the platform - unconventionally it goes in side first, instead of bow first. It creates a massive wave as the boat rocks from side to side - almost tipping 180 degrees so we can see the bunting on the top of the ship.
