USS America CVA-66 1970 Operation Springboard



USS America CVA-66 1970 Operation Springboard




DVD Content
This DVD contains 8mm color home movies from Operation Springboard 70, which was conducted just prior to her 1970 Vietnam combat cruise (2/15/70 - 2/21/70).
This is great footage filmed entirely on the ship, with the exception of a minute or so at the end of dark footage filmed inside a COD and flying ashore.
Great flight operations, filmed from the island and the LSO platform. I suspect this was filmed by a tech rep out with the A-7's.
Good scenes about the flight deck.
Great UNREP scenes.
A great look at a carrier conducting combat operations during the Cold War.
The footage has not been edited. It has been left exactly as it was captured from the 8mm films.
20+ 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.
