Vickers Vulture Flying Boat in Petropavlovsk, Soviet Union
Vickers Vulture Flying Boat in Petropavlovsk, Soviet Union

The flying boat seen here in the harbour at Petropavlovsk was the second aircraft involved in an ambitious round-the-world flight attempt.

Supporting this flight required substantial efforts to organize supplies and maintenance at a number of points along the planned flight path. British officials arranged to meet the plane with supplies and fuel, and the rendezvous with HMCS Thiepval at Petropavlovsk had been organized by the flight's corporate sponsor, Shell Oil, and the Canadian government.
