"A Fighting Lady Speaks" USS Philippine Sea (CV-47) 1950-51 Korean War



"A Fighting Lady Speaks" USS Philippine Sea (CV-47) 1950-51 Korean War




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 16mm Navy documentary filmed almost entirely aboard Philippine Sea, to chronicle her efforts early in the Korean War. This was filmed during her 1950-51 deployment.
Includes dramatic gun camera footage of brutal attacks of enemy forces on the ground. These gun camera scenes were also filmed by Philippine Sea aircraft.
Good launch and recovery sequences. The only scene not from Philippine Seas was a trap aboard the USS Valley Forge (CV-45). This was used to illustrate the perils of carrier landings, as a tire departs the aircraft as it lands.
Ready room scenes.
The film is mostly narrated by a woman who is speaking as if she is the Philippine Sea. Hence the title.
This film, while relatively short, is a fascinating and rather complete look at a fighting carrier during the Korean War.
Aircraft include Panthers, F4U Corsairs and AD Skyraiders.
About 10 minutes running time.

  • Produced by GRS Videos (TM). GRS Videos is dedicated to the preservation of Naval Aviation film footage. This passion began when the son of a recently deceased Korean War veteran told me how he had thrown away all of those "old 8mm films of planes flying off of a ship". Yes, I cried. Our heritage MUST be preserved. As a veteran of Naval Aviation, I have a strong interest in ensuring that our stories are not forgotten. If you have footage (16mm, 8mm, VHS, Super 8, Beta, or Digital) contact me at PLAT_Collector@verizon.net. I will also gladly trade any footage I have for new footage (any format). So, if I have Naval Aviation footage you want, and you have something I do not have, contact me and I am confident we can work something out. I am always looking for new PLAT mishaps and home movies/video of carrier operations and life on carriers. All proceeds go into obtaining and preserving more Naval Aviation footage. Gary R. Schreffler served on USS Midway (with HS-12) from 1984-1991.
