U.S.S. Ticonderoga


The U.S.S. Ticonderoga carries a deck full of aircraft on May 14, 1964. The Ticonderoga was built during World War II and modified over the years to carry newer aircraft. The “Big T” saw action off the coast of Vietnam and provided air support during the Gulf of Tonkin incident three months later.
