During Operation Desert Storm

the ship took part in deception maneuvers meant to make the Iraquis believe that an amphibious landing was about to take place which held some of their forces to defend against that eventuality.

-

- Tragedy struck on 30 October, 1990 when IWO JIMA suffered a high pressure steam valve sustained a catastrophic mechanical failure that cost the lives of 10 of its crew but repairs kept her fully operational. A steam turbine valve in the fireroom sustained a catastrophic mechanical failure. This failure resulted in the release of superheated steam at a temperature of 850 degrees Fahrenheit in the fireroom.

- == [[Project_Apollo#Manned_missions|Apollo 13]] Primary Recovery Ship (1970) ==

-

- On [March 2], [1970] IWO JIMA went to sea for a week to conduct exercises off the coast of California. During this period she began rehearsing for the recovery of [Apollo 13] by practicing the recovery of dummy command module and by conducting carrier qualifications for Antisubmarine Helicopter Squadron FOUR [(HS-4)].

-

- On the 21st of March, IWO JIMA sailed from [San Diego, California] for [Pearl Harbor] and for the next three days finalized all preparations for the recovery operation and arrived at Pearl Harbor on the 26th.

-

- On the [March 30], 1970 IWO went to sea in the local operating area off Hawaii for an intensive three day training period during which she conducted four (4) full scale simulated exercises [(SIMEX)], going through the entire recovery evolution from "splashdown" to recovery of the command module.. Upon return to Pearl Harbor, the Mobile Quarantine Facility [(MQF)] was onloaded and on the 3rd the presail conference was held aboard.

-

- A SIMEX was conducted on [April 8]th and again on [April 11]th.

 

- The 11th marked the launch of Apollo 13 and found Iwo on station for a possible abort.

-

- After the successful trans lunar insertion of Apollo 13, IWO proceeded slowly north again following an imaginary (virtual) point in the ocean which would mark the (spacecraft's) splashdown] if anything went wrong and the spacecraft had to return to earth prematurely.

-

- On the [April 13]th another SIMEX was conducted and it was that night that IWO received word that an abort was indeed to occur due to an explosion on board the spacecraft.

These were secured onto Iwo Jima's flight deck during the series of off-shore capsule recovery 'simulation exercises' (SIMEX) cited above.
