Several sailors and an officer also help and are seen putting out the last remaining flames. An armed marine guard watches over destroyed parts of an engine, propeller and cowling sitting in a field. In change of scene, an officer directs a firefighter in protective gear as he hoses foam on the wreckage of a larger crashed aircraft. Shallow hole in ground is shown. Another scene shows sailors working around numerous pieces of aircraft wreckage laid out on the ground. Next sequence shows sailors running toward a smoking crash site.A vehicle with flag on it's bumper is parked nearby. Sailors direct hoses on the wreckage and smoke rises from it. Armed Marines walk about the area. The smoldering wreckage indicates this was a relatively small aircraft.
