Have you ever seen the Hollywood motion picture "The Bridges At Toko-Ri?" For Dale Berven, he was there first hand without the Hollywood special effects. About 25 years ago, he had his 8mm films transfered to VHS tape. I offered to have them digitized when they surfaced again and here they are.

Hornet CVA-12 is the namesake of Hornet CV-8 that launched the Doolittle Raiders. CV-8 was lost in action on October 27 1942.

CVA-12 was also the prime recovery vessel for NASA's first two crews to walk on the moon.

More information on the Hornet Museum located in San Francisco Bay at the former Alameda Naval Air Station can be found on their web site at:

If you enjoy these videos, you might want to check out the book "Panthers Over Korea" by George Schnitzer. The book was recently published in October of 2007 and I really enjoyed it! The book has good descriptions about the men, aircraft, missions, terminology, and signals.
