Summary: The seaplane took off form the bay and narrowly avoided a collision with another plane and in the process veered sharply and so abruptly that one of the wings was strained beyond its elastic limits. The pilot then lost control of the aircraft and it fell, tail spinning 300 feet into the water where one of the engines exploded on impact. It sunk immediately.
