Over the two-month period, VF-11, equipped with two A-6Es, dropped over 300,000 pounds of ordnance and escorted 13,482 strike sorties, while VF-71 and VF-71, equipped with four A-6Es, escorted 9,128 strike sorties. The Avenger was involved in the largest-ever combined A-6/F-4 joint strike, the first against a surface target, on 9 February 1968, near Haiphong; for this mission, VF-71 took off from Kitty Hawk and was escorted by a pair of A-6Es, VF-74, as it punched through heavy weather toward North Vietnam. The first strike destroyed a petroleum storage facility, while the second, the third and fourth made strafing runs on the target. The second and third hits were on a large pier with a bridge, and the fourth went into a floating drydock. All four hits were seen by observers in Haiphong, who confirmed the hits. In the course of the mission, the Avenger sustained damage from AAA and antiaircraft missile fire, which caused one A-6 to make a landing at Da Nang and a second to crash at Midway. One A-6, flown by LTJG Peter L. White, had to ditch at sea; two A-6s (LN-B). flown by LTJG Robert J. Smith, were lost in Haiphong, and a third, flown by LN-B, was lost at Midway. The last two sorties (the third, by LN-B, crashed at Da Nang) were flown by Ensign James J. Lynch, who was later rescued and rescued by Kitty Hawk.
19 Dec 1967: Commander, Carrier Air Wing Twenty-five, and ComAirPac, ordered Kitty Hawk, with air and surface search and rescue (SAR) assets aboard, to drop anchor in the South China Sea. On the 23rd, Kitty Hawk arrived at the operational area. On Christmas Eve, the frigate Phenix and destroyer John D. Edwards entered the combat zone, assisting with search. Kitty Hawk set up a daily steaming pattern, with search planes, including Griffon photo-reconnaissance aircraft, flying low-level patrols over the sea area. Kitty Hawk was operating under a special top-secret war plan which allowed the carrier to launch a strike on the shortest notice.
I have a SketchUp Pro 2017 license on my Windows 10 Home and a SketchUp Pro 2016 license on my Windows 8.1. I used to be able to download more than one file per license from 3D Warehouse at the same time. Now I can only download one at a time and I cannot download more than one SketchUp Pro 2017 license... any idea?
