What does this helicopter have to do with the USS New Jersey? Well, nothing really. Except they were doing takeoffs & landings on the shore just off BB-62's bow and I thought it was pretty cool. The museum staff thought so too and mentioned this doesn't happen often. There is a NJ State Police marina just a few hundred feet from the museum and it looked like they were taking divers onboard and flying them around a bit.
