USS Saratoga (CVA-60) 1956-58 Med Cruise

DVD Content
This DVD contains the actual, uncut footage that was filmed by a crewman serving on USS Saratoga during the 1956-1958 Med Cruise. A fantastic look into Naval Aviation (NAVAIR) in the 1950s -Very unique, never before seen footage-
Great footage of several types of aircraft
The footage was filmed by a Marine, and so includes unique footage of the MARDET drilling on the flight deck, as well as great berthing scenes
Great launch and recovery sequences
Great liberty sequences from Med Ports
Nearly 60 minutes running time
The footage has not been edited. It has been left exactly as it was captured from the 8mm films
Bonus: Footage from a 50' reel filmed in 1964. While short, it actually has a lot of good footage, including the mighty Vigilante

  • 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.
