Other titles:POST-WAR NAVAL OPERATIONS - MISCELLANEOUS [Allocated Series Title]
Summary: Deck landing trials on HMS Illustrious with a Sea Vampire and a Westland Wyvern.
Description: A series of HA.MSs aft from the island and slow motion MSs from a camera boomed out aft on the starboard side as a Sea Vampire lands on. This is followed by HAs of a Wyvern S.4 WV 774 landing on. The final sequence is an aerial one, shot from a helicopter which turns in from Illustrious' port quarter to roughly simulate an aircraft's approach and therefore the pilot's view of the mirror landing sight.
