    Check this out. A jeep, appropriated from the pier at Pearl Harbor, with no one seeming to notice, jury rigged for aircraft tugging. Otherwise, they pushed them like on the left. Note in the early ESSEX class pics, there are NO vehicles on the flight deck. Another ESSEX first.

    The F-14´s 72 degree wing eversweep position is also used for crowded flightdeck parking. wings extended, the F-14 spans just over 64 feet but, oversweept, spans only 32 feet 8.5 inches. Life at sea creates heavy weathering on the aircraft.

    Amidships, eyes are focused on the deck for even the smallest object wich, once sucked into an engine inlet, can cause catastrophic damage.



    Arriving near the stern, the completation of the FOD walkdown means aircraft engines can be started and flight operations begun


    In the cockpit of the F/A-18 Hornet the pilot is ready to go. This Hornet is about to taxiied forward for launch- Every one is awaiting the word to go.



    The green shirt, hookup man, has insured that the catapult launch bar is connected and the tension is correct.
