The Supermarine Walrus

The Supermarine Walrus came into service in 1936 as a reconnaissance seaplane. Technicians launched the plane with a catapult and it became the first amphibious aircraft in the world to be launched in this way with a full military load. They served deep into the Second World War and claimed some submarine sinkings although it was primarily a reconnaisance aircraft.
