65 still doesn't answer the question of "what HAPPENED here", which the Stardate of 52075 and the choppers not going in the drink does. So while Pos is getting his 'tude back, how about it, Wagga?

Or should I just come out with it?

I have not the first clue what the Apollo 11 landing reference means. That crew was picked up by Hornet, CVA 12.

The shot is of USS Enterprise, CVA (later CVN) 65, the first nuke carrier. It was taken on May 20, 1975, on a return cruise back to the US. The choppers on deck had been used in the evacuation of Saigon three weeks earlier.

And the only one that had an island shaped like that - it was the only one in its class. The 65 clue was superfluous.

As for the other stuff, I don't know

CH-53s actually did much of the heavy lifting in Frequent Wind, probably more than the Hueys. The Hueys were mostly a desperation move toward the end, such as for the embassy rooftop, when there was no more deck space on the Hancock, for example. But they weren't the only ones that went in the drink. I have seen film of 3 Chinooks being ditched. The famous footage is all of Hueys, but it created an impression that they were all deep sixed. Hence the clue.

In any event, these CH-53s were all being returned from that operation.

I can't connect this clue. Does it match up with corralled mustangs and flying Thunderbirds?
