Views from a Tennessee class Battleship during the U.S. Navy bombardment of Saipan in World War 2. An OS2U Kingfisher observation floatplane lands in the slick astern the battleship and taxis to a recovery mat. A sailor flagman signals for the catapulting of a Kingfisher, which is seen as it launches from the battleship. One of the ship's 14-inch gun barrels is seen above the catapult rail.
