Here is some rare 8mm color footage my father took in 1959 while stationed in Argentia Newfoundland. The Naval Base was part of the Atlantic Barrier, North America's early warning detection from attack during the Cold War. They would fly 24 hours a day looking for threats regardless of weather conditions. They were known as Willy Victor VW-13 aka Paul Revere flying the Lockheed Super Constellation EC-121 Warning Star. This video is Part 1 of 2. Be sure to check out Part 2 by visiting My Channel page. (UPDATE: Audio was removed 7/10/13)
