NAVY DOCUMENTARY FILM TITLED "THE GREAT FLIGHT: THE NC4 STORY"




DVD Content
This DVD contains the uncut 16mm film titled "The Great Flight: The NC4 Story."
This Navy produced film begins with the fully restored aircraft being presented to the public at the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC. Guests include the only living crewman from the flight. But what makes this film so cool is the vintage footage of the NC4 before and during the epic 1919 transatlantic flight, when it became the first plane to do so. Also, footage of her sister aircraft. The footage includes great shots of NC4 landing and taking off from the water. Also, footage of NC3 which was forced to make an emergency landing during the same flight, and was sailed into the Azores. The footage shows the damaged NC3 sailing into port.
This is a great DVD for anyone interested in learning of a very historic airplane and flight.
Running time: 15 minutes

  • 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.
