During the First World War, early seaplanes such as the Short 184 and Bristol F2 quickly established themselves in reconnaissance and submarine hunting roles. When peace returned, the fledgling Royal Air Force used a succession of graceful and magnificent flying boats to patrol the length and breadth of the British Empire. But with the outbreak of the Second World War, seaplanes and flying boats once more played a vital role in protecting the nations sea lanes, hunting the U-Boats and German surface raiders that menaced the convoys.
The last flying boat left Royal Air Force service in 1959, and few remain in preservation today. This video however includes beautiful colour footage of the last Sunderland still flying as well as stunning air-to-air film of a Catalina.
