Slow motion pictures of carrier operations on flight deck of the USS Guadalcanal (CVE-60) during World War 2. U.S. Navy aircraft F-4U makes a normal landing aboard USS Guadalcanal. U.S. Marine fighter FM Wildcat comes for a fast landing and fails to catch arresting cables. The FM Wildcat hits barrier, and flips over, up-side-down. Sailors rush to the site and attempt to right the aircraft by raising the tail. But the plane falls back down. Then they right it by rolling it over on its nose and right wing.
