I was on the Connie back in '62 during the first shakedown cruise at GITMO. Air group 13, VA133 There was a fire on board before the ship first went to sea, I don't remember all the details, but I do remember some people abandoning via morring ropes. At the time of the fire the ship was in New York. The Connie was an East coast ship at first with Mayport, Fla. as the home port
