NAVY AIRSHIP FILM "THE AIRSHIP: FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES AND OPERATION" USS MINDARO (CVE-120) 1950




DVD Content
This DVD contains the uncut 16mm Navy produced training film "The Airship: Fundamental Principles and Operation." This film focuses on the updated K-type, the ZP2K standard. In what is without question the most complete explanation of airship principles, cutaway animation is employed to show how ballonets work during altitude change and for adjusting altitude. ZP2K improvements are detailed, such as in-air refueling and routine CVE operations (featuring USS Mindoro (CVE-120). The original film had a badly damaged sound track, but I was able to enhance it to an audible level. However, for you audiophiles, be advised that there is a lot of static in the background, but for the remaining 99% of us, it is not a problem. As a huge bonus, this is a color film from 1950!
This is a great look at Navy Airships and CVE Operations.
Running time: 19 minutes

  • Produced by GRS Videos (TM). GRS Videos is dedicated to the preservation of Naval Aviation film footage. This passion began when the son of a recently deceased Korean War veteran told me how he had thrown away all of those "old 8mm films of planes flying off of a ship". Yes, I cried. Our heritage MUST be preserved. As a veteran of Naval Aviation, I have a strong interest in ensuring that our stories are not forgotten. If you have footage (16mm, 8mm, VHS, Super 8, Beta, or Digital) contact me at PLAT_Collector@verizon.net. I will also gladly trade any footage I have for new footage (any format). So, if I have Naval Aviation footage you want, and you have something I do not have, contact me and I am confident we can work something out. I am always looking for new PLAT mishaps and home movies/video of carrier operations and life on carriers. All proceeds go into obtaining and preserving more Naval Aviation footage. Gary R. Schreffler served on USS Midway (with HS-12) from 1984-1991.
