Slow motion pictures of activities on the flight deck of the USS Guadalcanal (CV-60) in World War 2. An F4U Corsair airplane approaches to the port side of the USS Guadalcanal underway in the Atlantic, during World War 2. It snags the first arresting cable, but heads off the port side, until the arresting cable pulls it back onto the flight deck, narrowly missing the photographer. Spray from firefighters is seen. The pilot exits the cockpit, toward the camera. flames break out beneath the airplane, and smoke rises from the scene. Suddenly large quantities of liquid are seen spraying the scene as firefighters come closer, extinguishing the fire.
