I took most of these during carrier ops during the Yom Kippur War in '73. I was a backseater in the F4J, VF-33 USS Independence. We were in the process of changing our paint scheme during the ops. I apologize for the quality but these are scans from 35 year old slide media that has begun the slide into oblivion:

October 1973 at Naval Air Facility Souda Bay, Crete. We were doing proficiency flying while the boat was anchored near Athens. This was just before Yom Kippur:


Night preflight on the boat:


Surface interdiction hop. Our Wingman:

Dusk Catapult. A squadron mate took this one. The the plane has just shed the launch cradle and is beginning to rotate:

Night BARCAP mission:


Failure to make station time was not an option. We are next on the Cat, this F4 is launching into a fog bank, you can see the vapor peeling off his wing before he even rotates. I couldn't believe we were actually going to launch into zero/zero.

Taken after the war, somewhere over the Aegean:

Post what service you were in, perhaps when & where you were when the photo was taken.
