Two Vought OS2U "Kingfisher" floatplanes warming up on the cruiser's fantail prior to catapult launching, probably at the time of the Invasion of Southern France, August 1944. Note barrels of Quincy's after eight-inch guns in the foreground, hangar hatch cover and twin aircraft cranes at the ship's stern.
