USAF C-119 aircraft and crews practice space capsule recovery in the Discoverer program

Several C-119J aircraft of the U.S. Air Force 6593rd Test Squadron (Special) take off in succession from Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii, on missions to develop and test capability to snag space capsules parachuting to earth from satellites in orbit. (Note: The mission of the 6593rd Test Squadron was to recover film capsules returning to earth from orbiting Corona photoreconnaissance satellites, during the 1960s. Their JC-119s had "beavertail" doors that could be opened in flight [unlike clamshell doors that had to be left behind for open-door operations in other C-119s]. All American Engineering Company installed the special recovery equipment in the squadron's aircraft. The 6593rd Squadron accomplished the first successful mid-air recovery of an object from an orbiting satellite, on 19 August 1960, when they captured a film capsule released in the Corona Discoverer 14 Satellite mission.)

Woman engineering worker argues with boss and urges that employees make use of a new information center.

Early information retrieval practices in a corporate engineering office in the United States during the 1960s. Dramatization depicts a woman in the work force in the 1960s: Female worker with vintage 1960s beehive hair style appears to be performing work as a secretary, but, it turns out she is engineer Julie Stone. Julie takes printouts from a printer in information center. She opens a drawer and takes out document files. She leaves her office. She arrives at office of her Chief named George A Price. Chief scolds an engineer called Harry for committing mistakes in his designs. Chief asks Harry to be responsible in his work. Another engineer named Pete Newton draws designs. View of the cabins. Harry meets Newton and discuss about his conversation with Chief. Julie calls Harry. They go to a restaurant for lunch. They talk about the sources of information and Julie encourages Harry to use the information center that she runs, rather than relying on antiquated and incomplete methods of obtaining information. Julie gets up and leaves the restaurant. Harry and Pete talk in the office. Pete asks him about his meeting with Julie. Harry takes his seat and opens a drawer. He looks over the documents and publications, including a Playboy magazine, to get information about transistors. Julie meets with Chief and complains about Pete and other engineers failure to use the information center and to lookup answers to questions in a more comprehensive way. Chief attends a telephone call. Pete enters Chief's office. Depicts woman worker arguing with boss. Clip also shows examples of common work place interpretation of women worker roles in the 1960s, including opening introduction of clip that objectifies the woman worker as a sexual object (before broad awareness of sexual harassment in the workplace), and a restaurant scene that opens with the man assuming that the woman has asked him out to lunch as a love interest rather than for work purposes.
