During an infrared radiation thermography survey, the plane crew take a photograph of the original Sandy Hook Laboratory campus and surrounding historic Fort Hancock section of Sandy Hook. Located on Officer's Row and facing the Sandy Hook Bay, the Laboratory campus consisted of a three-story building that was previously used by the Army as a hospital and three adjoining structures. In the photograph mid-ground, Building 74, which would become the administrative headquarters of the new Laboratory after the destruction of the original buildings by arson in 1985, can be seen. The wing of the plane can also be seen in the top-left corner of the photograph and the Atlantic Ocean can be seen in the photograph background.

This item was donated by Malcolm J. Silverman in 2010. Silverman, who once worked at the Laboratory as a biologist and who participated in the Laboratory's IRT (infrared radiation thermography) surveys took many aerial photographs, which he later digitized and gave to the James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory. The Lionel A. Walford Library maintains digital images on a server to ensure their long-term availability.
