SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - AUGUST 21: Pilot Rod Brooking leans out of the Catalina, a 70 year old aircraft, parked at Southampton Airport at the end of the first leg of its 'Circuit of Britain Flight', which commenced from the Imperial War Museum Duxford on August 21, 2013 in Southampton, England. The Catalina, which is the oldest UK-based, airworthy amphibian, is recreating the journey made by pioneer aviator Harry Hawker on the 100 anniversary of his flight. The 1913 Circuit of Britain Race was the first major British competition for seaplanes, however of the four aeroplanes entered only Harry Hawker and his mechanic Harry Kauper were able to take the start in Southampton. Their attempt at the circumnavigation of Britain ended when their Sopwith Waterplane crashed on landing just North of Dublin. (Photo by Oli Scarff/Getty Images)
