Pacific Ocean Date:1944, June Duration:1 min 53 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Flight deck operations aboard USS Lexington (CV-16) in the Pacific during World War 2. A dozen U.S. Navy F6F-3 Hellcats of VF-16 taxi along the flight deck with canopies open. One F6F passes overhead with landing gear down. (Note: This is near the end of VF-16's tour aboard the Lexington. The planes look worn, with paint touched up in spots and their squadron "Fighting Airedales" insignia barely visible.)
