The helicopter makes its final alignment into wind just before touchdown.

The H-3 Sea King Helicopter was the work horse of the ship. It transferred everything from supplies to personnel from ship to ship. I also remember the H-3 Sea King standing guard, with swimmers, for aircraft launch procedures. The Sea King Helicopter also was used to lower sonar buoys to listen for enemy subs
in the area.

Do you see the wires across the deck? These are the landing wires (arresting cables) used to catch the aircraft as they land. You can see four wires here, I think their are five in all. From what I understand, the pilots aim for the third wire.
