USS Independence CVA-62 1960 Flight Operations



USS Independence CVA-62 1960 Flight Operations




DVD Content
This DVD contains 16mm black and white footage of flight operations filmed by photographers aboard the Indy in April 1960.
This is great footage shot entirely from the flight deck, in slightly slow-motion, which really brings out the aircraft. There are numerous title panels throughout this film, listing the photographer who filmed each sequence. This may have been shot for training, but we are darned lucky to have this today.
What makes this film such a gem is the types of aircraft filmed. Included: F4D Skyray, F11F Tiger, F3H Demon, F-8 Crusader, A3D Skywarrior, A-3 Skyhawk, E-1 Tracer. Complete list is below:
F11F Tiger
A4D Skyhawk
A3D Skywarrior
WF2 Tracer
F8U Crusader
F3H Demon
F4D Skyray
Film contains both traps and launches, with more traps than launches. The traps were filmed from the starboard catwalk, across from the LSO platform.
An incredible look at very cool vintage aircraft from a very unique perspective!!
35+ 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.
