This film footage depicts USS ENTERPRISE CV-6 fighting fires after two 5" shells detonated over her forward flight deck on 20 March 1945 . The danger from friendly fire was ever-present once enemy planes made it through the task group's outer defenses. This film was shot from aboard light cruiser USS Astoria CL-90 by Photographer's Mate Walter J. Duggan. This footage comes from the National Archives collection. It was restored by ColorLab at the request of Brent Jones, creator of www.mighty90.com.
