Flight Ops

This is the flight deck on the carrier, USS Yorktown, circa 1960. I was not an operations guy like these men pictured here (a most dangerous job). I was assigned to Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Four (HS-4) as my first duty assignment out of boot camp (graduated boot camp the first week of April, 1960). I was an administrative person, not a crew member. Watching planes and helicopters take off and land, day and night, was very exciting.
