  • Short Summary

    Seaplane made for a child to pilot, a model which is demonstrated on a lake by a boy named Tony Porter

  • Description

    No title.

    Two men carry a model seaplane down to the edge of a lake. A small boy follows them. They put the model into the water and the boy climbs inside the cockpit. The boy's name is Tony Porter and the plane is 1 h.p.

    Tony looks at the camera and smiles. There is an RAF insignia on the side of the plane. C/U of the motor. The boy pilots the seaplane across the lake. Various shots of the plane on the water. Pretty nifty.

    Was an item in Pathe Pictorial issue number 651.
