|Excellent flight operations, with fantastic footage of FJ Fury's as well as the F7U Cutlass, Panthers, AD Skyraiders, AJ Savages and the HUP helicopter. This is such a vintage air wing film. You will love it!!!

|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.
