US Navy filming aboard ‘The Fighting Lady’, pseudonym for the USS Yorktown (CV-10) in the Pacific Theater during World War II. US aircraft return after an assault on the Imperial Japanese Naval fleet. Damaged and crippled planes make landing attempts on the flight deck.

A US Navy crew member helps the US Navy pilot out of the burning plane. Crew members carry him away on a stretcher. Another crippled plane lands on the flight deck. Sailors put up the scores on a wall of the carrier including Japanese aircraft, ships and cruisers destroyed by the USS Yorktown crew. A pilot puts up his score on his plane, for the number of Japanese aircraft and Imperial Navy carriers hit. The crew collects on the flight deck for burial at sea. The deceased include Lieutenant Commanders and Lieutenants.
