On April 4, 1939, a flight of six U.S. Navy biplanes were cruising at 2,000 feet over the Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts, as part of the launching ceremony for the Navy’s new aircraft carrier, the U.S.S. Wasp, (CV-7).

While passing overhead, the aircraft began to execute a maneuver where each in turn would roll over and dive downward. As they were doing so, the second and third planes in the formation collided in mid-air, and both crashed as a result.
