Slow motion pictures of operations aboard the USS Guadalcanal (CVE-60) at sea, in the Atlantic ocean, during World War 2. Marines watch landing of U.S. Navy FM-2 Wildcat on the aircraft carrier as its tail wheel breaks off. The aircraft drags its tail as it passes close to the camera position, beside the flight deck. View of clouds in the sky (possibly unintended). U.S. Navy SB2C Helldiver approaches for landing and catches wire, bounces and hits the barrier. An F4U Corsair hits the barrier while landing and stands upright on its nose. Deck crews rush to the scene and lower the aircraft to a normal position.
