Remarks: [Kodak 100] AC-760 from VQ-6 on board CVN69 Dwight D. Eisenhower. This is one of the 16 originally built S-3 converted to ES-3A, a very short-lived variant due to the expense of upgrading the aircraft's mission suite to maintain joint interconnectivity with other SIGINT platforms. As result all 16 were grounded by the beginning of this Century.
