NAVY AIRSHIP FILM "LIGHTER-THAN-AIR TRAINING" 1945




DVD Content
This DVD contains the uncut 16mm Navy produced training film "Lighter-Than-Air Training". This film was filmed at Lakehurst, New Jersey in 1945 and covers the entire range of skills needed to operate and maintain the K-type airship. Training in free balloons (yes, blimp pilots learned to fly in balloons!), the small L-type blimp, and finally the K-type is detailed. Enlisted ratings work the O & R line; an envelope erection is shown (the blimp is inflated).
This is a great look at Navy Airships.
Running time: 16 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.
