A U.S. Navy Martin PBM Mariner flying boat circles over several Imperial Japanese submarines as they are being scuttled and/or sunk by gunfire on April 1, 1946, off the Goto Islands, of Japan. Smoke drifts over the water from charges ignited aboard a sub. One of the submarines explodes raising a surge of water and huge black cloud. Clear view of a U.S. Baltimore class Cruiser with two scout planes aboard. Sailors watch from the U.S. Destroyer, USS Everett F. Larson (DD-830) as a submarine slips below the surface. Another submarine explodes and sinks. Gunfire from the Larson strikes another submarine. Smoke from the Larson's guns drifts in front of the camera.
