USS Monterey (CVL-26) 1953



USS Monterey (CVL-26) 1953




DVD Content
This is from original 16mm Kodachrome color home movies. The color is superb. This film was shot during a VIP dog and pony show
Marine Corps helicopter demonstration. Remember, 1953, so this is cool vintage helicopter footage
Scenes from Saufley Field and NAS Pensacola, including fire fighting training, the Dilbert Dunker, etc
And of course, great scenes filmed aboard the Monterey, including flight operations. Yellow Texans, and what look like a TBM Avenger and F6F Hellcats. I am not certain of the aircraft types, other than antiques…!
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.
