In regard to The USS Philippine Sea North Pacific 1945.......... This ship was not commissioned until May 1946. You will notice that all the aircraft are F4Us. For the first time since commissioning she took on four squadrons of F4U Corsair fighters in the summer of of 1950 and sailed for Korea and was on station there through half of 1951.The photo most likely was taken in the winter of 1951 off Korea.
Nice web sight. Best regards, Commander Robert McCarthy USN (retired)
