Plane type: Sikorsky S-6B Floatplane

The S-6B was a British racing seaplane developed by R.J. Mitchell for the Supermarine company. The S-6B represented the cutting edge of aerodynamic technology and Mitchell's experience and marked the culmination of Mitchell's quest to "perfect the design of the racing seaplane" and was the last in the line of racing seaplanes developed by Supermarine. The aircraft was designed to take part in the Schneider Trophy competition of 1931. The winning Schneider flight was piloted by Flt. Lt. John N. Boothman at a speed of 340.08 mph, flying seven perfect laps of the triangular course. The success of this airplane greatly contributed to the development of the later Supermarine Spitfire.
