Carrier Landings

I made two westpac deployments aboard Hancock, 1961-62, 1962-63, flying the F3H Demon with VF-213. I was a CVA-19 Centurion [100 carrier landings] on the '62 cruise, and double Centurion/night Centurion on the '63 cruise. Survived a night flight deck crash in foggy/rough seas and still made '63 cruise OK.
