USS FDR (CVA-42) 1961-62 MED CRUISE




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut footage that was filmed by an AD pilot during the 1961-62 Med Cruise. A fantastic look into Naval Aviation (NAVAIR) aboard a deployed carrier in the early 1960's. -Very unique, never before seen footage- This is unique home movie footage, as it was filmed by a pilot who liked to take his camera flying.
Great scenes of the flight deck throughout.
Excellent flight operations.
Great liberty scenes. This young officer had an excellent eye for gorgeous women.
Excellent aerial footage from the cockpit of an AD Skyraider.
Great UNREP scenes.
Great liberty scenes.
This is, without doubt, the best documented Med Cruise of all the films in my collection. Whether on the ship, in the air or ashore, you will love the footage.
Over 90 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.
