USS RANGER (CVA-61) 1964-65 TONKIN GULF




DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut 8MM footage that was filmed by a crewman during the 1964-65 Vietnam Cruise. A fantastic look into Naval Aviation (NAVAIR) aboard a carrier at the beginning of the Vietnam War. -Very unique, never before seen footage-
The footage begins in NAS Sanford, with scenes of a change of command and then the families of the men from RVAH-5 saying their last good-byes as the guys board aircraft to take them to San Diego. Any sailor knows what those moments were like.
Excellent flight operations, with a cool variety of aircraft.
Some unique footage of a UH-2F Sea Sprite helicopter in the water, floating on its side. It obviously ditched, and the ship is recovering the aircraft.
Great UNREP scenes.
Good flight overall deck scenes.
Great liberty scenes, especially around Olongapo, including the infamous bridge over Shit Riverů
This is a great DVD of Ranger doing her thing!
Over 31 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.
