This is aboard the USS Midway (CVA-41) in the South China Sea, 1972. The aircraft is a USN C-2 and is used for delivering much needed parts and the Mail. It's called the COD - Carrier Onboard Delivery.
I served 31 years in the U.S. Navy starting in Jan 1957 and ending in Mar 1988. I later served another 10 years supporting the U.S. Navy as an aircraft mechanic employed by the Naval Aviation Depot at Jacksonville, FL from 1992 to 2002. Then we went full-time RVing.
