Last Known Activity

At 0728 26 October fire broke out in a forward magazine and raged through 5 decks, claiming the lives of 44 sailors. Many of those killed were veteran combat pilots who, a few hours earlier, had flown on raids over Vietnam. Serious damage to the carrier ended ORISKANY's WestPac deployment and following limited repairs in Subic Bay (RP) she returned to San Diego on 03 Nov 1966. Four months later ORISKANY departed the San Francisco Naval Shipyard and began preparations for a return to Yankee Station, departing for WestPac on 16 June 1967.
