Belly Landing

BELLY LANDING: On July 25, 1944 one of VMB-613's new pilots made a "wheels up" landing at MCAS Cherry Point.  Although there were no serious injuries and damage to the aircraft was slight, the aircraft was seriously damaged a short time later when a shackle on a crane that was being used to hoist the aircraft suddenly broke.
