Scenes of three Navy Grumman wildcat (F4F) airplanes crash landing on the USS Makassar Strait (CVE-91) during a training cruise off Hawaii, in 1944. One lands long and hot and falls off the end of the flight deck, into the water. Another catches left wing on edge of flight deck. And, still, another noses over and its turning propeller chews up the flight deck. ( A following airplane breaks off its approach at this time.)
