Good, historic photo. Which carrier? Approximate date? What was your job on board?


I double-taked at his coveralls. Did not see the "T" in "ASST"

Thanks for all the positive comments. I've got quite a few more and I'll try to slip a few in as time goes by.

Very nice that you could also get the helicopter in there.

Thanks for the nice comment. I can still remember the day I took this photo and thought that the helicopter balanced out the image.
