    From Days gone by....

    On May 15, 1981 Nimitz departed Norfolk for the final phases of her workup schedule for an upcoming Med Cruise. On the night of May 25 and EA-6B Prowler attempting to land struck a helicopter, then hit another aircraft and a tow tractor. A fuel fire erupted and, although fire-fighting systems reacted quickly, four missile warheads detonated. Fourteen crewmen were killed and 45 injured, three aircraft destroyed and nine damaged. The ship is seen returning to port, May 28, for repairs. She returned to sea less than 48 hours later to complete her training schedule.

Kennedy arrived in Norfolk on 18 October, after post-overhaul trials and a visit to Fort Lauderdale, FL. Nimitz arrived from the Med on 4 October. Dwight D. Eisenhower had returned from the Caribbean on 22 August and began a COH at Newport News on 26 October.

    This clip below from 1962 is in excerpt from a movie shot with multiple cameras using 70mm film. Hence the excellent quality. No digital in 1962 doncha know!.....



    The first German 70mm movie FLYING CLIPPER (1962) will hit the market as 4K UHD, Blu-Ray and DVD July 28, 2017

    "FLYING CLIPPER" is a monumental documentary about the adventures of a Swedish sailing ship, which travels into the Mediterranean in the early 1960s. The trip takes you to the dream destinations of the old world: from the C├┤te d'Azur, the Greek islands, to the pyramids of Egypt. Photographed in 1962 with specially designed 70mm cameras, "FLYING CLIPPER" was the first German film produced in this high-resolution large format. The spectacular photography of the Formula 1 race in Monaco or aboard the aircraft carrier USS Shangri-La are a technical masterpiece and still create a breathtaking visual experience.
