USS FDR (CVA-42) 1966-67 TONKIN GULF CRUISE



USS FDR (CVA-42) 1966-67 TONKIN GULF CRUISE




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 8mm footage that was filmed by a pilot during the 1966-67 combat cruise to Vietnam. This film is unique since the person who filmed it was an A-4 combat pilot who also took his camera flying.
Great scenes of the flight deck throughout.
Excellent flight operations.
Aerial scenes, including a cockpit view of tanking with a KA-3D, as well as combat strikes over North Vietnam.
Also, flight operations filmed from the plane guard helicopter. Actually, he did a great job filming flight ops from this perspective.
Great UNREP scenes.
I will say that this is probably one of the best films in my archive of a Vietnam combat cruise. It has it all; Great flight operations, scenes of the flight deck, UNREP, Aerial footage, and actual combat footage. Even footage of the flight deck during a typhoon.
About 24 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.
