    Sad to hear history fading away . . . and interesting to hear someone mention the USS Randolph . . . that was the ship my Dad sailed on back the 60's.

    15 aircraft were destroyed in the fires and sadly 27 lost their lives.
    A futher 314 were injured.
    The sadest moment of Big E's life.
    Sorry about the order of the images.
    Bon Voyage

    I've got an old friend who served on the the big E. He rotated home just a few
    months before the Fire.
