Flight Lieutenant Kinkead's RAF 'wonderplane' fails to take off in his bid to beat the world air speed record. Full titles read: "300 Miles an hour? - Bad luck mars first attempt of Flight Lt. Kinkead & R.A.F. wonder 'Plane to beat World record." Calshot, Hampshire. M/S of Flight Lieutenant Kinkead climbing into the cockpit of his plane, the Supermarine Napier S.5.; L/S of the plane being wheeled down a ramp into the sea. L/S of the plane picking up speed for takeoff, then slowing down - something is wrong! L/S of the plane being towed back towards the quay by a boat; Flight Lt Kinkead is seen climbing from the plane and onto the shoulders of a waiting rescue man, standing thigh-deep in the water. The man carries Kinkead on his shoulders to the quayside ramp (oh, the shame!), where he jumps down and walks off - it looks quite comical
