USS Midway (CV-41) 1988 Flight Operations




DVD Content
This DVD is from the original VHS home movies
This footage includes highly unique footage of Marine AV-8 Harriers performing carrier qualifications. You will see the Harrier do running take-offs off the angle, and then perform a side-step approach and landing to spot 3 (he must have thought he was a helicopter!)
There is a brief shot of the air wing doing a fly-over
After that, the camera goes into an E-2C and we go flying. Great formation flying with other E-2Cís, and then we are flying in the same air wing formation doing a fly-by the Midway
Then we do one bolter and a trap
Next are a couple of touch and goes and traps from the LSO platform
The DVD ends with another KMID-TV production, this time a pitch for Navy Relief from the admiral
About 26 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.
