The Fighting Lady is a must-see movie! Produced in 1944, this award winning film documents life aboard an anonymous aircraft carrier operating in the Pacific. Because of wartime security restrictions the name of the ship was only later revealed to be the USS Yorktown. You are given a personal insight into the lives of the pilots and crew of the aircraft carrier who carried out these dangerous missions in the Pacific during World War II. You get to know the airmen personally and experience what they must have felt during the stress under which they performed their bombing missions. The aerial combat footage alone will leave you mesmerized! The footage is absolutely spectacular as you fly with the combat pilots on their many bombing missions. The scenes of anti-aircraft fire, enemy planes exploding into flames as they are shot down, ships being fired upon, and the precarious landing of a plane coming in at 130 mph to land aboard the ship's deck will take your breath away! By the end of the film you want to stand up and salute these brave men for their patriotism and valour. (61 minutes - Color -1944 - 4:3).
