Let’s see more info before we start roasting people. Maybe there was a casualty of some sort. The weather may have also been a factor. Long story short, we weren’t there. Just glad no one got hurt. Vietnam veterans good soldiers betrayed by gutless politicians shirt While there is some intelligent discussion going on in this thread Brother there is a ton of armchair OOD-ing going on, of course. It always amazes me how everyone remember their time in service with rose colored glasses.

I’ve done dozens to perhaps a hundred, and 99%!of the time they are faultless, but I’ve been involved in three ‘emergency breakaways’, one involved the loss of a boiler on the port screw while port-side to. The plant was cross-connected so it was precautionary. No strike. #2 was a steering casualty. We shifted to after-steering and managed to get no closer than 15’ (admittedly TOO close!) but again escaped contact. Vietnam veterans good soldiers betrayed by gutless politicians shirt #3 was on the Hornet en route to Yokosuka two days out. We had a destroyer come alongside for fuel, lost power to one screw, and slid to port, her ASROC storage lightly impacting our folded #3 elevator doing some damage to both. We had structural damage to our elevator, and the DD required some superstructure panel replacement. No injuries in any, but pretty costly. I’ve also refueled in weather so rough they couldn’t use the forward refueling station as we were taking blue water over Mt 51!
Hang out with it and pray for our heroes
The Navy still does these on a nearly constant basis and the fleet averages 1/3 of surface vessels deployed at any given time versus the 15% averaged during the cold war you beat me to it!! I have this saved on all my devices. Casey was probably too busy enjoying the copious amounts of drugs that were being ingested back in the early 70’s to remember all those pesky facts. No matter how much training, theres always the chance that something can go wrong. And if anything today’s navy has better training because of prior accidents.
The old navy wasnt any different. In fact, they still show some famous casualties in our training from years ago.
So step off your high horse. 50 years ago accidents were absolutely still happening. Never bumped, but been close enough to shake hands a few times. Definitely pucker time, especially if the rig is still hooked up. Only had one high line part, sparks gave us a warning and everyone got clear before the wire snapped. What a rush! A myriad of sudden mechanical issues could have caused this. Perhaps leadership provided adequate mitigation and prevented more serious results. Who are we to say? We weren’t there.
