Chance-Vought O3U-3 is craned over the side of USS Lexington


This could be a post-flight recovery, but the running engine, tending lines, and the lack of dripping water, tell me this aircraft is being readied for flight.  Photo taken at NAS North Island. Aircraft carriers with float planes-all part of a great era in aviation.

Note the sailing ship in background.
