UPDATE "...LG-8 Aircraft Summary. I was AIO in VP-18 when photo over Soviet Merchant ship was taken. Photo was taken by Travis Knotts in Crew 5. Boxes and items visible on decks were alleged, by the Soviets, to be first missiles removed from Cuba, and the end of the Cuban Crisis. When LG-8 landed the film was developed at NS Roosevelt Roads, PR and placed in the fastest fighter avalable and sent to DC. The next day the photo appeared in every major newspaper in the world...HOFFER, LCDR Louis J. Retired Hoffer@cablespeed.com..." [24APR2003]

UPDATE "...I was very surprised when I saw the shot of LG-8, Crew 8, over the returning Russian vessel. I was the Patrol Plane Commander on that flight and can still recall seeing the ship's guns trained on us while we checked it out. Since it was a recconaissance mission, we were unarmed. Had we been fired upon, we could have called in fighters which were minutes away. We were flying out of NAS Key West while on detached duty from VP-18 based in NAS Jacksonville, Florida.
