FLY NAVY

Hi everyone. Thought I would share a few (of many) images that I am gathering together as I am preparing for a Squadron (VAQ-136 Gauntlets) reunion in San Diego, CA when the carrier USS Kitty Hawk (CV63) arrives for it's decommissioning. The Navy's only forward deployed carrier is being replaced with the USS George Washington, where it will return to Atsugi, Japan. Hope you enjoy the pic's here on 5th Gen.

Hopefully they get that fire damage fixed on the Washington ASAP. Japan is getting nervous.

LOL Of a sort. I was in the Air Force for 6 years, and now I work for a County Government.

I am and I kind of figured you were in a way, not too many other people follow the Washington close enough to even realize the implications to the Japan situation.

As I understand it, Japan denied the Truman, but gave the OK for the GW. Go figure.

Thats awesome, I have always wanted to go on the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. The flight deck of the Frigate I was on wasn't very big.

I can't decide, RS with all the bells and whistles or a stripped down, kill them all SS.

I had wisdom teeth pulled on the USNS Comfort while down at Hurricaine Katrina. only time on a Navy ship. I was kinda worried about having surgury on a boat... swooshin around in the water... lol but i was surprised. with the size of the ship, it was like a whole town on water... and couldnt even tell it was moving. and there were still some pretty big waves/wind a month after the hurricaine hit. that place was a mess, dont get me started, ill ramble on forever....

later

1986 Camaro Berlinetta (originally)-now a nitrous breathing 383 stroker

1992 Camaro RS - pretty much stock (only to keep its 25th anniversary edition book value)

all the other Camaros were sold

I think the USS Comfort is a floating hospital.
