Grissom, in Molly Brown, splashed down some 50 miles from Intrepid after history's first controlled re-entry into the earth's atmosphere ended the pair's nearly perfect three-orbit flight. A Navy helicopter lifted the astronauts from the spacecraft and flew them to Intrepid for medical examination and debriefing. Later Intrepid retrieved Molly Brown and returned the spaceship and astronauts to Cape Kennedy. This was Project Gemini's first manned flight. NHC

USS Intrepid refuels USS Agerholm (DD-826), July 1967.

Although designated as an anti-submarine carrier, Intrepid made three deployments to Vietnam as an attack carrier with Attack Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 10 assigned. This picture was taken during the second deployment, 11 May–30 December 1967. Three Grumman E-1B Tracer AEW aircraft, with their distinctive radomes, are spotted on the end of the flight deck. These aircraft belonged to Carrier Airborne Early Warning Squadron (VAW) 121, Det.11, "Griffins." (Thanks to Robert Hurst.)

All of these images were taken in the summer of 1967 in either the Gulf of Tonkin or Hong Kong.

August 30, 2005. Most planes in the extensive aircraft collection are on display on the flight deck: they span decades of military aviation history and include planes that were still in service when the photo was taken, like the Air Force's F-16 Fighting Falcon (6th from top, port), the Marine Corps AV-8 Harrier (top, starboard), and the Navy's F-14 Tomcat (3rd from top, starboard). Foreign aircraft are also represented: four sternmost planes are, bottom to top, an Israeli Kfir ("lion cub"); a French Étendard IVM; a British F-1 Scimitar; and a Polish, Soviet-designed, MiG-21 (codenamed Fishbed). First (top) plane on the port side is an A-12 Blackbird, a strategic reconnaissance aircraft able to fly at Mach 3+ and above 80,000 feet (24,384+ m).

Across the pier, a Concorde airliner sits on a barge. This particular aircraft made the fastest Atlantic crossing by any Concorde: 2 hours, 52', 59" (February 7, 1996).

Former missile submarine ex-USS Growler (SSG-577) is forward of the Concorde barge.

Note: Ex-USS Edson (DD-946) is no longer located at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum (see NS021139).

Detailed view of the bow of an Essex-class carrier after SCB-27C, SCB-125 and FRAM modernizations: enclosed ("hurricane") bow; steam catapults, as indicated by protruding bridle catchers; between them, a row of portholes shows the location of a secondary conn station; stem-mounted anchor to clear the SQS-23 sonar dome in her forefoot, with a secondary anchor retained on the starboard side. Note the prominent knuckle forward, a feature of the ships initially modernized with open bows; Lexington, Bon Homme Richard and Shangri-La, which received SCB-27C and SCB-125 modernizations simultaneously, had smoothly faired bows — see NS023115 for comparison.

New York City, October 31, 2006.

Six days later (November 6), after 24 years at the same Hudson River Pier 86, Intrepid was to be towed to Bayonne, NJ, for a 2-year, $60 million restoration. Six tugboats tried to take advantage of the yearly high tide to move the carrier, but they were able to move her barely 15 feet before she got stuck in the mud. A seventh tugboat was also unable to wiggle her free.

On November 11 it was announced that the Navy would give support to try to free the ship (see photo NS021193.)

A second attempt succeeded and Intrepid was towed to Bayonne, where her hull would be sandblasted and repainted. She will be towed again to Staten Island in late spring, to have her exhibition spaces renovated, and is expected to return to Pier 86 in November 2008.

Not only will the Museum be better, but it could be used as an emergency headquarters for various government agencies should an incident occur.

Sixteen Intrepid's former crewmen unfurled a giant American flag in honor of those killed in the 2001 terrorist attacks ("Honor Our Heroes") as the ship passed "ground zero," in what has become a ritual for naval ships.

After a 58-day stay at Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair, Intrepid was towed to Staten Island on June 6, 2007 to begin the next phase of her refurbishment — and make her interior as gleaming as her freshly painted exterior.

Regulus I missile, essentially a small turbojet aircraft, 42 feet (12.8 meters) long, with a wingspan of 21 feet (6.4 meters). Speed was Mach 0.91 (about 550 knots). Regulus was launched from an inclined ramp and was command-guided, initially out to the radar horizon, then by using a relay submarine nearer the target to track and steer the missile to the final aim point. Either a 40–50 kiloton nuclear warhead or a 1–2 megaton thermonuclear device could be carried.

Israel Aircraft Industries Kfir C-2, 1976.

Between 1985 and 1989 the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps leased 12 Kfirs from Isarel to be used for training in what is called Dissimilar Air Combat Training. Given the designation F-21A, the Kfirs gave the American pilots experience against an adversary of unknown capability. (Quoted from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.)

"USS Intrepid aircraft carrier which is home to the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is seen in the late afternoon on Sunday, Dec. 11, 2011 in New York City. Earlier in the afternoon NASA transferred title and ownership of the space shuttle Enterprise to the museum. The transfer is the first step toward Intrepid receiving Enterprise in the spring of 2012."
