  •  Actually McCain had nothing to do with the (10+ / 0-)

    Forrestal fire.  He just happened to be sitting in the A-4 next to the one that was hit by the Zuni rocket that came from a Phantom and exploded.  He egressed from his aircraft over the nose and got the hell out of there.  

    A lot of damage occurred and lives were lost in that accident.  Laying it on McCain (and I'm not a McCain apologist by any means, just an old Naval Aviator) is unfair.  The accident changed the way a lot of things were done on flight decks in subsequent years.
