When I was on the “Chuckie V(Carl Vinson)” in the late 80s and early 90s she(he) rode like a PIG(typical Carter Era Ship(boat))! My First Ship(USS Independence CV-62) rode like a 60s or 70s Cadillac Fleetwood SMOOTH!
“The Gathering Storm”
Pray for our men and women in uniform!
Excellent! We MUST insure the flow of oil... I mean, so long as it’s coming from other countries.
There is always one carrier in the region there. Vinson is replacing Stennis.
Things will only get interesting whenever the Vinson sails for Hormuz. Probably gonna happen at some stage over the next few days/weeks. Then we’ll see if the Iranians backtrack on their threats or actually try something crazy.

Post or FReepmail me if you wish to be enlisted in or discharged from the Navair Pinglist.
The only requirement for inclusion in the Navair Pinglist is an interest in Naval Aviation.
This is a medium to low volume pinglist.
Ackmadinner Jacket is going to be a little testy considering someone just blew up one of his Nuclear Scientist. Go Navy or anyone in the area.
Well, our Dhimmi in Chief hasn’t wimped out, at least not yet.
Got family on the Vinson.
CVW-17 had an outchop party/dinner at the Rota OClub in 1980. A food fight ensued. Things got out of hand and we trashed the place. IIRC, we were each fined $200. As of 1990, CVW-17 was still banned from any event there. Some people just can't let go.
