Williams, chief electrician; Chief Gunner Owen Hill, commanding; Igoe; Michael Malone; Barnett Bowie, Simpson, chief machinist mate, and Rhinelander.

||With the Mississippi (BB-23) and monitor Ozark (M-7) moored in the background, an early Curtiss flying boat overflies the ships at Naval Air Station Pensacola circa 1914.
The photo shows both the Mississippi and the Curtiss AB-3 at Pensacola, FL (building in background). In April of 1914 the US Navy siezed the port of Vera Cruz, Mexico, among the ships sent were the Mississippi carring an aviation detachment which included the AB-3. In June the Ozark was also sent to Vera Cruz. Port of departure for both ships - Pensacola FL. As the Mississippi turned over aviation detachment to the North Carolina (ACR-12) before returning home this would probable date the photo in March or April of 1914.
