Title:SCENES ON BOARD HMS OCEAN 3 [Allocated Title]
Film Number:ADM 701
Summary: Unedited scenes of aircraft landings on HMS Ocean (Colossus Class), and an Illustrious Class aircraft carriers.
Description: Various sequences, primarily of the Flight Deck Control Officer batting down Fairey Fireflies (Mks 1 and 5) and Supermarine Seafire Mk 47s - many are waved off because of faulty angle of approach. Sequences are shot from the island and stern hangar deck, but mainly from a position forward of the batsman in the port-side safety area - the camera picks up aircraft in LS as it approaches from the port quarter and pans to MS or MCU as it alights. Most of the aircraft which abort bank to pass down portside of aircraft carrier. Final section contains aerial MSs from an aircraft making stern approach to overfly HMS Ocean.
