USS FORRESTAL (CVA-59) 1974 MED CRUISE



USS FORRESTAL (CVA-59) 1974 MED CRUISE




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 8MM footage that was filmed by a crewman during the 1974 Med Cruise. A fantastic look into Naval Aviation (NAVAIR) aboard a carrier in the Med towards the end of the Vietnam War. -Very unique, never before seen footage- This was Forrestal's last cruise as a CVA. She was re-designated (with all carriers) as a multi-purpose CV-59.
Excellent flight operations, with a cool variety of aircraft: RA-5C, A-7E, KA-7D, A-6E, C-2, C-1, F-4, E-2B, and the mighty SH-3D.
Some unique footage where the photographer filmed PLAT video. About 2-minutes worth. Obviously, there is flicker as cameras and CRT's are not in synch.
Great UNREP scenes.
Good flight overall deck scenes.
This was 100% filmed aboard the ship.
Over 23 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.
