Western Pacific Ocean Date:1957 Duration:60 sec Sound:NO SOUND
U.S. ships of 7th Fleet seen during underway replenishment operations in the Western Pacific Ocean. Closeup (taken aboard) of the 7th Fleet Flagship, USS Saint Paul (CA-73) being refueled by the U.S. Navy Fleet Oiler, USS Hassayampa (AO-145) while underway. Two refueling hoses are seen between the ships. Camera pans toward the Oiler where the 6-inch fuel hoses can be clearly seen suspended from booms by saddles and associated rigging. (At this point, the camera records accidentally for a moment.) Next, the cruiser, USS Bremerton (CA-130) is seen silhouetted against the horizon. Scene shifts to view from stern of the Saint Paul, where two aircraft carriers and four other escort warships are seen following behind her.
