JOHN F. KENNEDY
th June -23rd June 1983
Noted on board the ship where the following:- CVW-3 'AC'
(Serials in green were on the hanger deck)
|Main report courtesy of BAR, other elements per my own logs.|
|Most of the A-6's either had toned-down markings or where in the low-vis grey scheme, and all were TRAM-capable although there were insufficient sensors aboard for each aircraft to have one. A-6E 157029/550 was in a serious state of disrepair on the hanger deck after a landing accident earlier in the cruise (one main wheel was lost in a heavy bolter while the other came off in the subsequent crash-landing on deck) S-3A's 160146/701 & 160148/704 were minus squadron markings, the former showing signs of a hasty requisition from its previous unit.|
