Daily Analog Photo - Yankee Station 1970

A few photos taken aboard the USS Bon Homme Richard in 1970

It wasn't often we would have a fly by on the ship
During flight operations it was just take offs and landings
It would have been nice to have a digital camera back then to get a high speed burst

Another fly by photo
These are impressive to see, so fast

'Fleet Angels'

If a plane went down our guys would rescue the pilot. These helicopters would remain airborne during flight operations
I worked on the Navigational and Communications gear (Avionics Technician)
