1. Hi-line detail shot
close to the Arctic Circle. The Bos'n Chair indicates the RKT was transferring
personnel. A few officers got a little damp during this one. Their "Pucker
Factor" was pretty high.
2. Helo Ops taken from the portside saluting battery just above the
3 inch 50 mount. The ship in the distance is the USS Albany. The RKT
was operating with a bunch of Gator Freighters during that cruise which
explains the Marine chopper.
3. Photo of a hi-line detail from the 1975 North Atlantic cruise. RKT
was doing personnel transfers to
the USS Albany.
