"WINGS OF A MARINE"



"WINGS OF A MARINE"




DVD Content
This is a great training film produced by and filmed the United States Marine Corps, and does a great job of showing the life o a new Marine pilot as he checks into his new command, and is fully checked out before they give him the keys to an A-4. We get to see all the flight physiology stuff (pressure chamber, ejection trainer, etc.), as well a great footage of Marine Air supporting ground troops. It is obvious that this was filmed by the Vietnam War, evidenced by a briefing that is using a map of Vietnam. Also includes some footage aboard the USS Lexington (CV-16), of Marine A-4's doing carrier quals. This was a recruiting film for Marine Aviators, and does a great job.
Running time: 19 minutes

  • 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.
