DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 8mm color footage that was filmed by an EA-1F crewman serving on USS America during the 1966 Med Cruise. A fantastic look into an aircraft carrier on a Med deployment during the Vietnam War years
Several types of aircraft, including great footage of the RA-5C Vigilante and A-3D Skywarrior. They don't just land. They bounce!!
Great launch and recovery sequences, including dawn flight operations. Great views of F-4 Phantom afterburner!
Go flying with an EA-1F. Great aerial views of America and other aircraft
Footage of UNREPS
Scenes while at anchor at Med ports. What makes this special is that the photographer chose to film scenes on and around the flight deck while the ship was at rest. Also filmed tourists on the flight deck during a port call
Unique footage filmed during the USS Liberty Incident. Includes a Soviet warship playing games with a U.S. destroyer. We even see a smoke screen. Then, footage of the CODs flying off the America with the Liberty wounded onboard. While the U.S. Liberty was not filmed, it is still a very significant piece of history
Footage of a bull fight in Spain

  • 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.
