    Destroyers of the Air - the latest American seaplanes for fighting U-boats.

    DS American seaplane skimming across the water on skis. Shot looking back across small waves at the seaplane as it takes off from water; and flies toward cam & overhead. LS Seaplane in air over water. Several men in a small boat (looks like motorboat); moving to left. Seaplane having just landed; skims across again to left; at fast speed. Same; slower as the craft approaches shore; pier in BG; then man wading in water in FG. DS men pull seaplane up a ramp; out of water; a little dog is running around on ramp; man lifts dog. GV strange looking building; perhaps where seaplane is stored - building is a long oval structure w/ rounded roof; a few small boats in front of it.
