This video documents the tragic fire aboard Enterprise (CVAN-65) in January 1969. The first part of the video is a Navy training film titled "Accidents Don't Just Happen." This narrated film (approximately 10 minutes) compares and contrasts the causes and events leading up to the Oriskany fire in 1966, Forrestal fire in 1967 and Enterprise fire in 1969. The remainder of the video is not narrated (music soundtrack); and is divided into four parts: activity on Enterprise's flight deck in July 1968, firefighting efforts by sailors aboard Enterprise in January 1969, the aftermath of the fire and damage assessment, and Enterprise's subsequent return to Pearl Harbor.
