USS Wasp (CV-7) flight operations during World War 2. Slow motion footage shows Grumman F4F-3 (BuNo 1066) of Navy Squadron VF-72, "Blue Wasps," rounding out high during landing. It catches an arresting cable, but the cable snaps and the F4F rolls into the barrier and noses over, remaining in a tail high position. Superstructure in the background. Deck crewmen run towards the crashed plane.
