A tractor tug eases a U.S. Navy PBM-3 Mariner flying boat down a ramp into water at the U.S. Navy Operating Base, Bermuda. View as the PBM heads toward the camera on a rocket assisted takeoff (RATO). As the rockets ignite, the PBM accelerates and takes off at a high angle of attack leaving a trail of white smoke behind. The rockets burn out and the aircraft levels at about two thousand feet, continuing on its way.
