Title: Skylab 2 crewmen arrive on deck of prime recovery ship
The three Skylab crewmen arrive on the deck of the prime recovery ship, 
U.S.S. Ticonderoga, following the successful splashdown of the Skylab 2 
Command Module about 835 miles southwest of San Diego, California. Leading 
down the steps is Astronaut Charles Conrad Jr., followed by 
Scientist-Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin, and Astronaut Paul J. Weitz. Recovery 
and medical personnel walk down the steps with the astronauts. The crewmen 
remained inside the spacecraft (seen in background) until it was hoisted 
aboard the recovery ship.
