Royal Navy flight operations aboard a United States aircraft carrier in Atlantic Ocean. A Royal Navy De Havilland Sea Vampire approaches and lands on flight deck of the aircraft carrier, USS Antietam (CV-36). Deck crewmen immediately surround, and attend to the airplane. Next, the aircraft is seen in the same position, being cleared to taxi and doing so rapidly, somewhat diagonally, across the flight deck. Several British naval flying officers are seen conversing aboard the ship, as they watch the flight operations. At one point, they all move their heads in unison, as they watch an aircraft land.
