|Description||U.S. Navy pilot Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Denny Earl of attack squadron VA-163 Saints, Carrier Air Wing Sixteen (CVW-16), with both legs shattered by North Vietnamese anti-aircraft fire, successfully lands his Douglas A-4E Skyhawk attack plane aboard the aircraft carrier USS Oriskany (CVA-34) in the Gulf of Tonkin, 20 October 1967. The nylon emergency barrier assures the wounded pilot that he will not have to make more than one attempt to land his plane.
Note: This photo was actually taken in October 1967 (not November 1967, as is incorrectly printed on the image). This particular aircraft, BuNo 149959, was shot down over Hanoi six days later, 26 October. Its pilot, Lt. Cdr. John S. McCain III (grandson of WW2 carrier admiral John S. McCain), spent 5½ years as a POW in Vietnam; he was elected to the US Senate (R-AZ) in 1986.
