****, it was a close call between the USS John F. Kennedy
(CV-67) and the USS Kitty Hawk
(CV-63). Both operated F18 E/F models and had the forward RAM missile launchers. However, the ship above has a distinct cutout on the port edge of the angled deck. That seals the deal. She is the Hawk.
The JFK had a smooth forward edge on its angled deck. Also, if you look closely, the plume coming out of the funnel rises vertically before drifting to port. The JFK's funnel was angled out to starboard and the plume would reflect this. Finally, on the Hawk's
website there is a pic of an F18 with a red tail much like the one shown about halfway back above.
