    VA-94 A-7E and a VA-95 Intruder, CVN-65, 1982(ish) I worked nights during most of this cruise. When day-check took over I would climb up into the island and shoot pics.

    Well you know one thing, based on the background and landing light, that was a nasty wx recovery.

    I think I see one of our RA5C Vigilante's tucked in behind the Island
    They sure hated the size of our aircraft on a tight deck....

    Good stuff, Pete !! I didn't realize the pilot sat so far forward........guess that helped a lot when landing........
