  • Short Summary

    Apollo 11 recovered from the sea.

  • Description

    United States of America (USA).

    Various shots of a helicopter hovering over the sea. A ship is seen at sea. More shots of a helicopter hovering with ship below. Several shots of a capsule in water with three men fiddling with inflatable dinghy - presumably the three moon astronauts. Various shots of the capsule at sea, helicopter hovering over it and men in a rubber dinghy. Frogmen come and surround the capsule - presumably working on retrieving it from the sea as a piece of history. More shots of the dinghy, helicopter and capsule. Men from the helicopter throw a seat attached to rope to bring the cosmonauts back in. Several shots of helicopter hovering over capsule during the rescue operation. Cameraman in helicopter shooting the operation. Another helicopter is seen at site - possibly the one with camera. Various night shots of the recovery operation - not much seen, quite unclear. Long air shot of the helicopter hovering over sea with something looking like a shark's fin seen bellow in water. Zoom into the fin, zoom back. Close up shot of the 'fin' reveals that the fin is a capsule - or another piece of equipment to be retrieved from the see. Helicopter hovering over it. Frogmen are seen around it.
