    I disagree. These ships were built during under the direction of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Built in Ukraine? of course. But they were originally Soviet ships.

    From the Daily Mail. Sorry.. No hi-res..great photos never the less.















    Thousands of spectators lined the banks of the River Solent in Hampshire today to welcome the 1,092ft-long USS Theodore Roosevelt as it arrived for a five-day visit to the UK. The U.S. aircraft carrier, which measures 1,092ft in length, docked off Stokes Bay in Gosport, Hampshire

    with more than 5,000 American sailors due to disembark from the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier for shore leave while it is moored in Stokes Bay, Gosport, the local economy is set for an estimated £1.5million boost.

    The city's bars, clubs, restaurants and visitor attractions are bracing themselves for a massive footfall when the sailors hit dry land during their ship's five-day visit.

    Nightclub Tiger Tiger located on the banks of Portsmouth Harbour is opening its doors at 9am during the week to put on English breakfasts.

    world deployment, is much larger than the Royal Navy's next generation of carriers, The Prince of Wales and Queen Elizabeth, which weigh in at 65,000 tonnes when they finally become operational.

    Among Roosevelt's crew are six Royal Navy aircraft handlers who are honing their skills before serving aboard the new Royal Navy carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, which enters service in 2017.

    he carrier's escort ship, the guided missile destroyer Winston S Churchill, was able to dock at Portsmouth.

    She traditionally carries a UK navigator to honour the ship's British connection with the post currently held by 27-year-old Lieutenant Lynsey Sewell.

    Welcoming the U.S. ship, Defence Secretary Michael Fallon said last night:

    'The USS Theodore Roosevelt's visit shows yet again that UK/US relations are as close as ever. Ten days ago, I was the first of his counterparts to meet incoming Defence Secretary Ash Carter.

    'Having the Roosevelt in Portsmouth today is yet another example

    Great pictures, when you see these things like this, along the coast, only then you can get feeling how big they are.

    True

    Yesterday was an anniversary of sorts for me. Yesterday was the 40th anniversary of me arriving aboard the USS John F Kennedy CVA-67. She was anchored out in Rhodes Greece. We hadda take a liberty launch out to the ship. It looked so massive. Impressive. Awesome. But what's more awesome is actually serving..especially in retrospect..

    That day started early for me. I flew in a C-130 from Rota SP to Naples Italy. Then on to Sigonella Italy. Next and last stop Rhodes Greece. We had started out at about 6:30am by the time we got to Rhodes it was about 2100 or so. we took a harrowing bus ride in a Mercedes Benz bus down to fleet landing. Like I stated we had to take a liberty launch out to the JFK. The ship looked so massive. She was all lit up. Impressive..most impressive...my boot camp self was wondering how I would ever find my way around the ship. The liberty launch tied up at deck house 4..on the fantail. I wrestled my gear to the afterbrow and reported aboard. We were taken through the Jet shop into the hangar. The hangar deck was empty. All the aircraft were neatly spotted on the flight deck. All of us ships company non-rates were assigned immediately to mess cook division aka S-2M. Since it was Friday night we did not have to check in until Monday. That was the very liberal 1972 USN.
