GRUMMAN KA-6D TEST FILMS



GRUMMAN KA-6D TEST FILMS




DVD Content
DVD Content This DVD contains test flight films from Grumman of the very first KA-6D tanker, BuNo 151582.
This is actually very good footage of the testing of the KA-6D tanker.
The footage was filmed from both a fixed camera attached to a wing station and pointed aft, as well as from the cockpit from an A-6 that was used as the refueling aircraft.
Some of the footage is actually pretty hairy, as the initial approaches to the basket appeared to hit unexpected turbulence, causing the refueling aircraft to abort and take evasive action.
When I first obtained the films, I thought ‘boring’ before I actually viewed them. However, I was quite pleasantly surprised at how cool the footage really is.
17 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.
