United States Navy pilot attempts landing on the aircraft carrier Langley (CV-1) off the coast of California, United States. An Aeromarine 39B, piloted by Lieutenant Commander G.C. Chevalier comes in for landing aboard the United States aircraft carrier Langley in October, 1922. He makes a go-around on the first pass. On the second approach, he lands but the arresting gear slowly retracts, pulling his airplane backwards, and causing it to nose over. Sailors rush towards the aircraft. Another view of the same incident from a camera on the opposite side of the flight deck.
