A seaplane, to compete in the Schneider Cup, is brought out on display at Southampton.
Item title reads: " To bring back the Schneider cup? Supermarine-Napier S5 and Gloster-Napier 4 - fastest machines ever built - Britain's "hopes" for great race at Venice in September. "Good luck to "The flying bullet's "pilots"."
Racing mono-seaplane with large floats is wheeled from hanger. It is mounted on a trolley and is pushed by ground crew. It passes slowly in front of camera. Two men stand on floats and hand crank the propeller. M/S man seated in the aeroplane. The propeller turns slowly and then spins into motion. Second sequence shows biplane with floats wheeled from hangar, followed by front and side views with the engine running. Pilots in uniform pose for a photo with planes in the background, -they pilots laugh at a joke.
Note: the aircraft looks modern, sleek and aerodynamic in design.
