Great scenes of the flight deck throughout.
Great footage from throughout the ship and this is what makes this such a special film.
It is told from the perspective a Scottish exchange pilot. The narration is a bit corny (think early 1960's), but it is a great film.
Excellent flight operations.
Great UNREP scenes.
Great liberty scenes.
Includes scenes filmed from the air.
It starts out with two guys talking on a private houseboat, but soon you will be flying to the FDR.

  • 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.
