Air Sea rescue operations in the U.S. Canal Zone. Three aircraft of the 1st Rescue Squadron, Howard Field, Panama Canal Zone, are seen flying above tha water. One flying the lowest is an SB-17 and above that a twin engine (C-47) and above that a smaller single engine airplane. Smoke from a flare is seen and an aircrew in a 20-man life raft. The C-47 airdrops something, and the SB-17 drops a large life boat, in a practice rescue operation. Crewmen in the raft, transfer to the life boat, raise its sail and start moving. A larger rescue motor boat intercepts them and the aircrew leave their sailboat and climb aboard the larger boat.
