    ****, 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.
    Also the JFK had a bow anchor.

    Yep so very true. No nation on Earth can do what this thread presents of the United States Navy.

    I once was a member of a UK based Naval Forum. Those fellows, bless them, had a lot of ***** envy of the USN. In fact they did not want me to post the hi-res photos of the USN..so I just stopped going to that forum.

    I agree mate, and seriously no sucking up required but thank god. We need a universal fleet made up of Australia - England - Canada - America - France and any other countries that can afford to be involved and I'm not talking U.N. I am talking about a fleet with the power to protect all our individual and collective countries without having to "***** foot" around and I don't think it fair that America is having to do this on her own. It must cost a fortune to have these ships cruising the oceans of the world and I think we could all do our bit. Please don't jump on the band wagon guys - this is just my opinion and on a global scale it doesn't mean much. I am not trying to upset anyone I'm just stating facts.

    Anyway.. those UK "blokes" are truly pissed that their government let the Royal Navy decline like it has. tht's is where a lot of their anger starts.

    I know and I can sympathize with them but to have a decent Navy you need Man power to crew the ships, and there's a hell of a decline in people joining any of the services.

    Talk about sea power - and that brings to mind my personal recollection of living on a carrier in the 60's. Working in engineering - the sounds, the smells, the feel of the ships motion and the throbbing of the turbines and props, not to mention the awsome power of the aircraft and armament and quick response time to any emergency. The ships departments, air power departments and the men who man them, all working as a well oiled, precision unit. And most of them are just kids, 18 to 25 year olds. These are the best kids in the world.

    Both my sons served, albeit in the army, one still in and will be a career man. I'm proud of them both.
