VINTAGE 1930's NAVY TRAINING FILM "APPROACH AND LANDING"




DVD Content
This DVD contains the Walt Disney produced navy training film Approach and Landing. This was filmed in the 1930's, and is a fantastic look at how those early aviators flew and were trained.
The highlight of this film is the aerial and ground footage of the N3N-3 bi-plane trainer, which was built by the Naval Aircraft Factory in Philadelphia, PA.
This film includes great narration, animated instructional diagrams, and a lot of the airplane. One of my favorite lines is how to 'feel' the airplane, and how to listen to the wind through the cables, to judge your speed and attitude. I now know where 'seat of your pants' flying came from!!
This is a classic Navy film from Pre-WWII.
About 20 minutes 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.
