First Poseidon Launch From Madison VIDEO

Ron Firestine sent this along to share.
I have a video of the first Poseidon launch. It was originally in 8mm film format. The film was found after crew change at the Cape. I was unable to locate the original owner. The original 8mm film has been lost in my several moves. It was converted to VHS in the 80s(?). I converted it to digital several years ago. I would like to donate it to the association for any use you would like. I don't know if it can be used on the web site. Ron Firestine
Be aware its 70 meg in size so a fast connection is recommended. I'm going to see if I can find a way to shrink the file to make it easier to share but its available now at the link below.

Thanks for sharing, Ron. Remember that JD Walton is our association/ship historian and would like to collect sea stories or memorabilia that you want to share.
