-Very unique, never before seen footage-
Film begins with scenes from liberty in Japan.
Then some great flight operations filmed from between the bow cats.
Good UNREP scenes.
Wog initiation. These are always good scenes, to prove to your loved ones that yes, all that crazy stuff I told you about really happened!!
Air show scenes. The ocean is bombed into submission!
Good flight overall deck scenes. In fact, all of the footage was shot from the flight deck. Nothing from vultures' row. The action is much more intimate.

  • 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.
