I heard the Aussies got some new subs on order.

 

I'd think you'd expect waves like that down in the 50's, 60's and 70's but in the Sea of Japan? WOW

that would be such a fun job working on an aircraft carrier. Especially with the US. ON board with Hornets taking off on deck, man what an experience that must be. Suppose it would kind of become a pain in the arse after a while though, especially when you are trying to sleep

While the carrier may look huge on the outside, having an entire base's worth of personnel onboard means it's very SMALL on the inside.

In calm seas the top of the flightdeck is 50-60 feet above the water.

Those waves were HUGE.

Imagine being a tincan(destroyer) sailer with that Battle Group.

Not for the weak stomach type. :blink:

If thats the day I think it was, I was on the Oly watching the Midway get blue water over the bow. when the front of the boat got out of the water they would punch 2 F-4s off the bow cats and spot 2 more on the cats while the bow was "wet". I believe that was also in the Sea of Japan.

the one shot that put up top is one I took from the flag bridge on Indy in the North Atlantic. If you look closely you'll see an A-7 wing in the spray, and just think of the A-6 spotted in front of the one in the center forward of the deck......

 

yea, a little bit of corrosion control work for the next month.............
