A brilliant day on the flight deck of the USS Intrepid.
This Bell UH-1 Iroquois helicopter is the iconic symbol of the war in Vietnam. This one is on display aboard the USS Intrepid in NYC. I usually don't get to take a profile shot, but aircraft were being moved around this day to accommodate painting of the flight deck.
Alongside our Growler, we get a Veteran's Day visit from an Amphibious Assault Carrier.

An icon of the Vietnam War, flown by Senator John McCain before he was shot down over North Vietnam and captured. This one stands on the deck of the USS Intrepid one misty night with NJ in the background.
