Uss Tarawa Lha 1 Cruise Book

Cruise books are created for private distribution. They are not official Navy publications, and the Navy does not stock, sell, or republish these books. This can make copies of some books, especially older volumes, extremely rare.

Uss Tarawa Lha 1 Cruise Book


In January 1985, the Flying Tigers took part in a goodwill operation, Operation Handclasp, while at Cubi Point. There they transported 3,600 pounds of books for needy children to Manila International Airport and 13,000 pounds of material to a Philippines leper colony.

This aircraft was issued, new, to Fighter Squadron (VF) 96 "Fighting Falcons" on 19 October 1968, and made its first war cruise, with Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 9 aboard USS Enterprise (CVAN-65), between 6 January and 2 July 1969. Its second cruise, again with CVW-9 but aboard USS America(CVA-66), began on 10 April 1970 and lasted until 22 December. The third and final cruise, this timeaboard USS Constellation (CVA-64) commenced on 1 October 1971. On 10 May 1972 LT Cunninghamand LT(JG) Driscoll shot down three MiG-17s, flying "Showtime 100," but a Vietnamese missile badly damagedthe plane and the crew had to eject just beyond the North Vietnamese coastline.
