Eastern Med.

Turn circles
Life in the steel city
Never sleeps


Flight deck

Pointing hands
Aircraft finding spots
Strange ballet


Catapult

Engine screams
Thrown into the air
Suddenly


Approach

Roger ball
On the glide path now
comming home


Third wire

Tail hook down
Engage the third wire
Quickly stop

To all who served on her.You are not forgotten FID.

Those vessels are a whole other world. Very nicely done. My dad spent years on the Nimitz. It seems some people do forget the heroes of the ocean. Wonderful tribute!

Sincerely,
Regina

I know this ship...and many more...its not just the crew of the Forrestal that deserves our honour...but all the men and women who put their lives on the line day in and day out so we can walk free...

Great write hats off to the men who serve and defend our great country.

Throw your heart out in front of you
And run out to catch it.
