About 3 minutes 20 seconds into the clip you will see an F6F Hellcat its hydraulics shot away during a strafing run pancake on the carrier deck and slew into the island. A deckhand was crushed between the aircraft and the superstructure and killed. The number on the plane is 30. The lanky pilot sitting dazed in the cockpit is a gentleman named Andy Cowan. He is hale and hearty at 87 and lives just north of Salinas CA.
