Photo Details
Photographer:D. Boyd [View profile]Title:PHYLLIS T. CONWAYAdded:Jun 08, 2018
Photo Category: Tankers built before 1970
While flying into Cam Rahn Bay I was able to get this shot of a Tanker, probably offloading. Can't make out the name though it's not totally indecipherable. It as good a shot as I might have ever expected taking it from a vibrating helicopter.
My photo, scan from color-corrected Ektachrome slide.
Cam Rahn Bay, 30 July 1969
Thanks to anyone who can ID.

If I had to guess, the vessel alongside looks like a US Army Y-type tanker.

But which tanker is lying alongside the Phyllis T Conway ??

I guess it is...Mary Ellen Conway and Barbara Jane Conway have the same upgrades circa 1960... interesting.

Is this really a rebuilt T2? it looks more modern to me, but i cant prove otherwise.

Thank you adenanthos. This slide had been languishing among the rest of my Viet Nam slides. As I recall, this was the only picture from that roll of film that even came out (the rest from the helicopter ride were all blurry). Even then being Ektachrome, it did not age well anyway. Happy to upload the first picture of this ship and perhaps Cam Rahn Bay as a location.

This is the PHYLLIS T CONWAY, I adjusted the name/IMO etc already for you
