Crash of a Grumman F4F-3 aircraft from U.S. Navy Squadron VF-42, on the carrier, USS Wasp, early in 1941. In a slow motion sequence, a U.S. Navy F4F-3, with F-42-17 painted on its side (BuNo 2537) is seen rounded out too high for landing, above all arresting cables, and drifting into the carrier's island, where it impacts, losing its right wing, and flipping over to crash inverted on the flight deck. Sailors stand in the background. After the aircraft settles, a sailor runs across the deck to render aid. (Note: Navy Squadrons VF-42 and VF-71, assigned to the USS Wasp, received their F4F-3 Wildcats in January and February of 1941 under Bureau of Aeronautics contract C-68219, order number 48-020. These aircraft were painted overall aluminum with VF-42 having willow green tails and VF-71 having black tails. Later in 1941 the aircraft were repainted overall light gray.)
