• Short Summary

    Plane that lands on water or on ground but has to be catapulted to fly - interesting.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "AVIATION'S LATEST WONDER - Vicker's Supermarine Amphibian Flying-Boat "Seagull" M. K. V. launched by catapult."

    Farnborough, Hampshire.

    Several shots of hydroplane speeding across the water. Plane stops and drives ashore - it has wheels. This newest flying invention is launched by catapult. Plane on catapult, several men getting it ready. Shot of the plane being catapulted and flying off. Nice slow motion shot of the plane being catapulted. Plane lands on airfield - not on water.
