Port Kaituma Footage

The NBC segment of newsreel footage of the shootings at the Port Kaituma airstrip is here.

The tape begins with several seconds of the preceding footage (to show context as the airplane was being loaded, followed by a sudden jump to the shooting) and then several seconds of static to show the tape ran out. The tape of the actual shooting is from a low and distorted angle because the NBC cameraman who filmed the shooting had fallen to the ground after being severely wounded. He was killed by a coup-de-grace shot a few moments later.
