    The head Admiral of the Argentine Navy feared she would be sunk by the RN. She was kept out of harms way. Also, he feared the USN would assits the RN. Why? The USS Forestal CV-59 was operating near Brazil at the time.

    Were aircraft really used for that?

    IIRC, in the movie, the CAG raised the issue with the captain, but subsequently backed down.





    This brings to mind a scene from a movie called the Caine Mutiny

    Greenwald:

    When I was studying law, and Mr. Keefer here was writing his stories, and you, Willie, were tearing up the playing fields of dear old Princeton, who was standing guard over this fat, dumb, happy country of ours, eh?

    Not us. Oh, no! We knew you couldn’t make any money in the service.

    So who did the dirty work for us? Queeg did!


    Thanks for looking out for us BD!
    Thank you Lt-Col.

    I've seen that movie. And back when I served in the USN ,'71-'91, I knoew quite a few "old salts" that served in the Korean war. And I heard a lot of sea stories but I never heard of prop aircraft used to manuever a CV. I don't think it happened.

    The Caine Munity is a great film. By the way I get around $1300 a month in retired pay... Anybody want some frozen strawberries???

Truman (CVN 75). Truman and embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3 are underway on a regularly scheduled deployment in support of maritime security operations.

    You are, of course, referring to the conspiracy uncovered by Yellowstain himself

    Partial Panel, way to go with those RN PIX! The RN is responsible for many CV inovations.

    jackie yu, sometimes pics disappear because the photo hosting site we pic posters use goes off line for a short period of time. Just be patient and the pics will re-appear...

    Thanks to everyone for keeping this thread alive. I'm sure it will remain popular

    I'll post more PIX tomorrow.

    Thank you! The main site I use http://www.dezh.de/ disappears about once a week for maintainence for about 4+ hours. Usally on Sunday or Monday.

    As for PIX>>> The USN has virtually limitless CV PIX on line for the public to download. You'd better believe I will!!
