Australian pilot Hawker's aeroplane lifted out of the ocean after transatlantic flight attempt.
Titles read: 'Falmouth. Saved From The Sea. All that is left of Hawker's aeroplane.'
Remains of crashed aeroplane pulled from ocean. Shot of crane on a pier lifting the plane - basically looks like a pile of stuff with some big tarp on top. A bunch of men stand on the pier looking down at the mess. CU a few sailors etc. standing around by the ruined aeroplane - just bars sticking out here & there - it really doesn't even resemble an aeroplane. Pan along the mess. Another shot of guys sort of posing beside it.
American cataloguer notes: 'In 1919 Harry Hawker; an Australian aviator; attempted a transatlantic flight from Newfoundland to Ireland; but was forced down at sea.'
