Operation Crosswind - USS Intrepid 1957



Operation Crosswind - USS Intrepid 1957




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 16mm color footage filmed aboard the USS Intrepid (CVA-11) during Operation Crosswind in 1957. Operation Crosswind was a successful demonstration of how aircraft could be launched despite wind conditions. Down wind launches were also conducted.
Several types of vintage aircraft including a Lockheed TV-2 Shooting Star!
Great launch and recovery sequences.
This film was shot with some sort of a splitter lens. This means that there are two identical images on the screen. In order to make this a single image, I would have had to zoom in to such a point where the video quality would have greatly suffered. Consequently, the footage was left as it was filmed. This is not distracting to me, but to some it might be. Please view the screen captures.
This is still a great USS Intrepid film!
Over 15 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.
