USS AMERICA (CVA-66) 1966-68 MED AND WORLD CRUISE




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 8mm home movies filmed by a crewmember.
USS America (CVA-66) 1966-68 cruises (Med Cruise, then World Cruise, end up in Cubi and the Tonkin Gulf). This is a 2.5-hour epic that will knock your socks off. Includes the best, ever, home movie of a barricade: An E-6 landing missing his right wheel. This is actually an incredibly well documented period of time aboard the America. Very little liberty stuff. Also see where an A-4 nearly fell off the ship (the film picks up with hanging off the angle), and then trying to get it back on deck. Just lots of very cool, very interesting things.
Great scenes of the flight deck. This film provides a great look at lengthy period of USS America history.
Great flight operations, and a lot of it.
UNREP scenes.
Good liberty scenes, but not too much. This DVD is mostly aboard the America.
Also, a very unique event caught on film. We are in Spain, watching a bull fight. Suddenly, the bull takes out the matador. I mean knocked on his back, and then the bull hits him again with his horns. Hurray for the underdog!
About 2.5 hours running time.

  • 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.
