1967: During the Vietnam War, a missile misfire from a F-4 Phantom starts a fire onboard the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal off the coast of North Vietnam. The blaze would prove to be the worst U.S. naval disaster since World War II, killing 134 people and injuring another 161. Here the destroyer USS Rupertus can be seen helping extinguish the fire.
