Apollo 13 Flight Recovery Images Lundgren

Apollo 13 (April 11 -17, 1970) was planned as the third lunar landing mission, but an explosion in the Apollo Service Module caused the mission to be aborted. After orbiting nearly 6 days, Apollo 13 landed in the Pacific Ocean on April 17, 1970 where it was recovered by the USS Iwo Jima (LPH-2). Rodger Lee Lundgren was serving aboard the Iwo Jima at the time of the recovery as a Data Systems Technician.
