Left engine of a C-119J aircraft starts. Several C-119J aircraft of the U.S. Air Force 6593rd Test Squadron (Special) taxi out for takeoff at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii. They are on missions for Project Discoverer, to practice snagging space capsules as they parachute to earth from satellites in orbit. As they taxi, C-54 and C-124 aircraft can be seen in the far background. A Pan American Boeing 377 Stratocruiser passenger airplane can be seen on a nearby taxiway. The first C-119J stops on the runway, and then proceeds to take off. Several more follow in succession.
