Tsingtao China Date:1946 Duration:35 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Tsingtao (Qingdao) Shantung Province, China. Camera pans over a hilltop with foliage and several buildings, near the U.S. Navy Air Base at Tsingtao (Qingdao) Shantung Province, China. It focuses on several sailors standing near a completely destroyed Navy R5D (Douglas DC-4) aircraft. The outer wings are missing and its four engines have been removed. While panning the wreckage, the camera picks up part of a tail number reading:" 80395." To the right, another aircraft fuselage is seen. Strips of aluminum are missing from it. It also appears to be a Navy R5D. A view of the cockpit shows the two control yokes missing from their pedestals. (Apparently salvageable parts have been removed from these crashed aircraft by Navy personnel.)
