U.S. Army Glider operations in World War 2. Men set up two poles 20 feet apart on a field, for a so-called "Snatch" operation. (This involves a flying pickup, by an airborne tow plane, snatching the towline of a glider that is still on the ground. It is intended for glider retrieval. The actual operation is not shown in this sequence.) A C-47 aircraft takes off towards the camera, towing two CG-4A gliders. Close view from nearby airplane, of a glider being towed (its tow line visible).
