The Fighting Lady DVD  c2011 Zeno's Warbird Videos .All rights reserved.
* The Fighting Lady (1944,Color, 65:00) New Color Print from Archival Footage! The film looks so real, you'll think you're watching it in a theater in 1944.
"The Fighting Lady follows the fictional career of an Essex Class aircraft carrier from the Marcus Islands campaign, through Tinian, Truk, the "Mariana's Turkey Shoot" and much more. But don't let the term "fictionalized" miss lead you. All of the footage shown in this fascinating composite documentary is real -- shot by combat cameramen on board ship and in the air, showing actual Navy and Marine pilots and crewmen up close and personal. ("The Fighting Lady was actually the nickname given to the Yorktowns, CV-5 & CV-10.) You'll see dramatic action showing Hellcats, Hell Divers, Corsairs on deck and in the air, including exciting dive bombing, anti-aircraft, and gun camera footage and some amazing walkaway crash landings. And there's a fascinating tour below decks too. But most memorably, you'll see the faces of the officers and enlisted men of the Fighting Lady at work and at rest, making it all possible -- in some cases by giving their lives. Powerfully narrated by Lt. Robert Taylor
* Flight Deck Crews: Landing & Re-Spotting Aircraft (1943, Color 25:00)
* Flight Deck Crews: Catapulting from an Aircraft Carrier (1944, Color 25:00)
Major air battles in the Pacific turned on the ability of each side to quickly launch, land, re-arm, re-fuel, and then re-launch aircraft. During the battle of  Midway, when American dive bombers caught the Japanese carriers Akagi and Kaga with decks full of refueling and re-arming planes, the resulting catastrophe for the IJN was a turning point in World War II. These unique films offer a rare look (in color) at how US Navy carrier flight deck crews were trained to quickly land, park, fuel & re-arm incoming and relaunch aircraft. As a bonus, you'll see GM FM-1 "Wildcats" and Grumman TBF "Avengers" up close, handled expertly on the tiny deck of a CVE "jeep" escort carrier. "Not to be missed by any carrier fan!"  Zeno
