L/Ss of enemy planes falling into sea after being hit during aerial combat with our planes. L/S of a Spitfire flying low over sea. A British airman floats in the sea after bailing out. He is picked up by a destroyer and smiles at camera before being wrapped in a blanket and taken below. Assault craft head back towards Britain. Several shots of injured men from the raid.
