The USS Randolph (CV-15) hit by a Japanese Yokosuka P1Y " Frances", twin-engine kamikaze bomber, on her starboard side,aft, just below the flight deck, as she was anchored at Ulithi, during World War 2. Flames appear in the dark aboard the carrier as firefighters work in the area under searchlights. Later scene shows crew members silhouetted against orange flames as they fight the fire. It appears to come under control, but several small explosions propel burning objects aloft, and flames continue to break out. (Note: 25 crew were killed and 106 wounded during this incident.)
