  • Description

    Part of issue GOOD HUNTINGDON.

    Australia.

    Various shots of salvaged allied ship that sunk in Australian waters. When the vessel went down, the fuel tanks burst covering interior of ship in oil. C/U of new chemical, named in commentary only as "G2", that effectively removes oil without risk of fire. The chemical comes in form of powder that dissolves in water. We see oil being removed by the chemical solution - looks very fast and effective.
