The Americans would earn a lot of money if they would sell these decommissioned aircraft carriers (such as America, Forrestal etc.) to a foreign Navy such as Brazilian or Indian.. Maybe the Kitty Hawk or the Constellation (or both of them) which are the newest from the decommissioned aircraft carriers should be kept as a reserve but for the others could be a good idea to sold. Except of course if they want more museums! p-)

More from the HMAS Melbourne.

My friend told me that The Royal Australian Navy had TA-4G's, but they could'nt operate off Melbourne as it was deemed that due to the extra distance it takes a two seat A-4 to rotate following a bolter the risk was too high. This is the reason that he heard when he was in the navy, it could of co**** be totally wrong.

HMS Ark Royal Visits HMNB Clyde for the Final Time

The Royal Navy’s mighty HMS Ark Royal visits HM Naval Base Clyde in Scotland for the last time.
After celebrating 25 years in Fleet commission at a special ceremony attended by HM The Queen in Portsmouth on November 5, the Royal Navy’s aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal sailed into the Clyde.
The Invincible class carrier was considered in the Fleet reductions required under SDSR and Ark will now retire gracefully having delivered a quarter of a century of proud and sterling service to the country.
Her role as the current Royal Navy flagship will initially be taken on by amphibious assault ship HMS Albion in early December.
The Mighty Ark, as she is affectionately known in the Senior Service, paid her visit in order to deammunition at Glen Mallan Jetty on Loch Long.

first flights over Afghanistan

On 25 November, the air group aboard the aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle led the first flights in support of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan.

The first mission was conducted by an aerial watch Hawkeye aircraft that operated for 5 hours over Afghanistan's territory to coordinate and control the flight of hundreds of coalition aircraft. In coordination with U.S. Hawkeye, the unit has managed the French circuit refueling combat aircraft.

Today, 26 November, combat aircraft Rafale and Super Etendard modernized (SEM) conducted their first missions in support of troops engaged in ground (CAS or close air support). The planes have illuminated the route of a British patrol in southern Afghanistan, supported an evacuation alert and ensured a CAS, ready to be engaged in combat situations on the ground.

In two days, the aircraft's APU have made a dozen trips totaling about 25 hours. The mission of the battle group deployed off of Afghanistan is part of the mission Agapanthus 2010 that began in mid-November.

Handout photo of a Harrier GR9 landing on the recently decommissioned Ark Royal Aircraft Carrier, in Britain, 11 March 2010. The Harrier jump jet will make its final operational flight on 15 December 2010, leaving from RAF Cottesmore in Rutland. The aircraft, one of Britain's greatest technical achievements was retired early after falling victim to defense cuts. In celebration of the aircraft, Harriers will pass over seven military bases, the town centres of Stamford and Oakham, and Lincoln Cathedral. The Harriers will be decommissioned in 2011 to be replaced by the Joint Strike Fighter by the end of the decade

Thanks guys, I appreciate it. I am going to upload all my "Plane" pictures to a hosting site called MediaFire.

I can only upload 200 meg at a time and I've got nearly a gig of pictures in my planes folder so I will upload 200 meg leave it for a week then replace it with another 200 meg.

Hello ****,

here we go then!

I was so lucky at the time that I had the chance to be on board of most of the US Ships which visited my town and I also took some pics. There were no digital cameras so all the pics are from a reflex and scanned. I hope you'll forgive me if I don't remember the names of the units and some pics may be wrongly described.

These first pics were taken on board of USS Kennedy CV67

Nice post SgtFcm, if the Kennedy and the America are two of my favorite carriers but there aren't a lot of pictures of them around. If you want to post the pictures in a larger format mate, sign up with "*******" (it's free).
You can upload your pictures there and post them full size here.
Thanks again for the pics buddy.

I have posted the pics of the Long Beach mate.
