The Sea Flea, a crazy vehicle, half boat, half seaplane is tested on the Thames.
Item title reads: " "The Sea Flea" Which looks like a mixture of glider - seaplane, submarine & ship - "hops along" during trials on the Thames."
M/S of boat with propeller spinning, followed by a shot of the winged boat taxiing towards camera. It has a boat's hull and seaplane wings with floats, and portholes on the side. M/S of boat-cum-plane speeding up the river with its hull lifting off the water. The boat is almost stationary as it is seen with a man standing on the top, wearing a dark boiler suit, directing. It taxis past camera.
