    Default More from 1962 - Fueling at sea.

    These were taken while refueling the Samuel B Roberts DD 823 from ESSEX in 1962 or 63.


    Pulling the forward hose.




    Pulling the midships hose





    Topping her off - no breakaway or washdown this time.





    Roberts after fueling station.




    People transfer. Shall we give him a dip?





    Most important to them and last but not least - THE MAIL.

    Default Again - more ESSEX pics from 1962

    These were taken in St Thomas Virgin Islands, December, 1962.

    The Captain's gig and the Admiral's barge.





    What the heck did you do with the keys for this one?





    Liberty call - pack em in there!





    These were taken from an after gun tub on the 02 level where we stood smoke watch.


    Catching the wire.





    Up or down?





    What's this guy got?





    He's got mail guys!





    Launching?





    Move it here - move it there --.

    Did you know that ESSEX was the first carrier to use a vehicle to move aircraft on the flight deck? The early carriers had no deck vehicles. Planes were all moved by hand. Someone got the idea to BORROW a jeep from the pier. Somehow they loaded it on the flight deck with the boat crane and no one said a word. They jury rigged some tow bars and it worked. Someplace I saw a picture of this thing. I'll try to find it and post it.





    In - port deck watch - boring.





    These were taken in port. That's about the only time a snipe was allowed to roam around on the flight deck without getting in the way.


    Tilly's on hand to dump it if they can't get it fixed.





    EJ and a plane. A snipe & a plane? Looks good to send home though.

    [IMG]http://i715.photobucket.com/albums/ww157/hammerman_01/ESSEXEJcantflyitbu****urelooksprett.jpg[/IMG]



    My buddy Mike's favorite plane.





    EJ by a 5 inch/38. Not a gunner either --but looks cool.





    Our new antenna array.




    A full deck.




    Limited parking.

    Eugene awesome post, excellent pictures
    Here a very rare video

    F-111B Carrier Trials

    http://www.patricksaviation.com/videos/hokeyPokey/3899/

    The F-111B was to be a fleet air defense (FAD) fighter for the U.S. Navy, fulfilling a long-standing naval requirement for a fighter capable of carrying heavy, long-range missiles to defend carriers and their battle groups from Soviet bombers and fighter-bombers equipped with anti-ship missiles. The Navy had just cancelled the F6D Missileer, a concept for a slow, straight-winged jet with the advanced Hughes AN/AWG-9 pulse-Doppler radar, which could detect low flying targets among ground clutter, and lift eight new AIM-54 Phoenix long range, air-to-air missiles, which could attack multiple aircraft simultaneously at ranges out to 100 miles (160 km). The concept was soon cancelled, but the F-111 offered a platform with the range, payload, and Mach 2 performance of a fighter to intercept targets quickly, but with swing wings and turbofan engines, it could also loiter on station for long periods. The F-111B would carry six Phoenix missiles, but have no gun or other short range armament. General Dynamics, having no experience with carrier-based aviation, partnered with Grumman for this version.
