Both squadrons were part of Carrier Air Group Eight (CVG-8) aboard the carrier USS Forrestal (CVA-59) in the early 1960s. Date Note: The date given "26 Jun 1987" has to be incorrect, as both types of aircraft were long out of the US Navy inventory. Also, the Skyhawk BuNo 145006 crashed 17 km (10 mi) astern of USS Forrestal on 16 November 1962. The pilot was killed in this accident.

Nice pics!
Does that Corsair #114 look like it's "Really" tucked in close or is it the angle of the photo!
