If u guys are interested in colour footage from US aircraft carriers during WWII, I suggest you go looking of for The Fighting Lady (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0036823/), a true unique documentary about CV-10 in colour, "on its first major operations following its commissioning in 1943. The life of the crew is documented from July 1943 to June 1944, from its passage through the Panama Canal through assaults on Marcus, Kwajalein, Truk and Tinian Islands, and culminating with the Battle of the Philippine Sea"

I actually think that a lot of the footage in the above clip is from this documentary..

Here, took a few screens for you guys.

Sure, the "tone" of the film is maybe not so objective, and a bit too "jolly" - it's an old war documentary remember, but the footage is unique
