Notice for airmen about to launch from the catapult on board the aircraft carrier HMS VICTORIOUS at Hvalfjord, Iceland. A Fleet Air Arm Mechanic stands in front of the catapult gear with the notice "Brakes Off, Fine Pitch, Flaps", so that pilots will be reminded of their task. Steam from the catapult can be seen in the background.
