DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 8mm home movies filmed by a crewmember.
USS Lake Champlain (CVA-39), 1954-55 Med Cruise. I was thrilled to get these films, as footage of the Lake Champlain as a CVA is very hard to find. But in the end, this is a great period home movie, with great vintage flight ops.
Great scenes of the flight deck. This film provides a great look a very cool period of Naval Aviation.
Great flight operations with Skyraiders, Cougars and Panthers. Includes a minor mishap: A Panther into the barrier.
Excellent gunnery practice, ending with the target in the water burning.
Good liberty scenes, but not too much. This DVD is mostly aboard the Lake Champlain.
And, of course, that big 39 on the bow and stern!!
About 22 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.
