Yes, perfect. A photo I have not seen before and a very nice memory of Colonel Pogue.

February 8, 1974. None of the 3 television networks at that time carried the splashdown live. I saw a blurb on the evening news that did include shots of the crew on the carrier. I really liked the Pogue and Carr beards.

Great shot Ed.

Rest in Peace Col. Pogue.

Great picture. Sad that the mainstream media made almost no mention of his passing...

Looking at a picture like this makes me wonder; this vehicle just landed so couldn't there be toxic fumes still around the vehicle?

Great choice. Bill Pogue was the best autograph signer and person I have ever interacted with in the astronaut corp. He will be missed.
