On board USS Nimitz (CVN 68) in one of the counted appearances in Palma de Mallorca. Picture of the Skywarrior Ranger 16 from VQ-2 squadron (Rota, Spain) just 12 days before one of its sisterships (Ranger 12, BuNo 144850) suffered a dramatic accident in the Ionian Sea when attempted to land on this carrier. The aircraft slammed the deck then skidded down the flight deck and fell into the sea. The seven member of its crew killed. (January 25, 1987 at 23:28)
