USS BON HOMME RICHARD (CVA-31) 1962 FAR EAST CRUISE




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut footage that was filmed by a crewman during the 1962 Far East Cruise. A fantastic look into Naval Aviation (NAVAIR) aboard a carrier just before the Vietnam War. -Very unique, never before seen footage-
The first 3 or so minutes were filmed during a tiger cruise.
Great scenes of the flight deck throughout.
Excellent flight operations, and lots of it, including the F-3 Demon.
Great UNREP footage.
Footage of an F-8 in the port catwalk. We miss the Crusader going over the side, but great scenes of Tilly picking it up and putting it back on the flight deck.
Great swim call footage.
Footage of bombs being loaded onto aircraft.
Great liberty scenes.
Simply a great all-round DVD of a carrier during an early 1960ís deployment.
There are a few spots (just a couple of minutes total) where the film was either overexposed, or has faded. Rather than play censor I left them.
49 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.
