An Anchored Aircraft Carrier On A Gorgeous Day In Hawaii

Original Photo By Bradley Alan

Snapped This Shot While In PEARL HARBOR, HAWAII, During The Summer Of 2000.

It’s One Of Those Pics That Always Brings A Little Smile To My Face.

I Can Remember The Day It Was Taken…

…And How Exceptionally Gorgeous It Was.

Hope Ya Dig It, My Peeps.

A Lone Sailor And His Ship

Original Photo By Bradley Alan

This Shot Was Taken Off The Coast Of PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA.

The Lone Sailor Stares Back At His Ship (The U.S.S. ABRAHAM LINCOLN) From A Liberty Boat.

I Sincerely Hope Y’all Enjoy This One.

It’s A Photo That Was Purely Happenstance.

Guess I Got Lucky With It, Eh?!?!

I Just Thought These Two Photos Were Kinda Cool.

Since I’ve Showed-Off So Many Others…

…I Figured Y’all Might Enjoy These, Also.

They’re Views From Both The PORT And STARBOARD Sides Of The Ship.

Nice View, Eh?!?

I Thought So, As Well!

A Very Picturesque View – THREE (3) Carriers

Original Photos By Bradley Alan

To See ONE (1) Carrier Is Cool.

To See TWO (2) Carriers Together Is Rare Enough.

To See THREE (3) Carriers Lined-Up Bow-To-Stern Is…

…Hmm…

…Well…

…I Don’t Know What It Is.

I Only Ever Saw THREE (3) Carriers Lined-Up Like This Once…

…And THIS Was It!

Pretty Nifty, Fo SHO.

Just Thought Y’all Might Like This One.

In The Hangar: Part 4: A Personal Favorite Hangar Photo

Original Photos By Bradley Alan

This Photo Shows An F-18 HORNET Being Pushed Into Position As It’s Taken Up From The Hangar Deck On The Hangar Elevator Up To The Flight Deck.

It Was Taken In Such A Way As To Illustrate Just How Massive The Hangar Deck, And Therefore The Ship, Actually Is.

It’s Freakin’ HUGE, My Peeps.

Fo Sho FO SHO!!!

Just Thought Y’all Might Like These Two.

Ya Know…

…Since They Show-Off A Couple Of The Other Aircraft We Carried Along With Us.

The Top Aircraft Was What Was Used To Ferry Passengers, Equipment, And…

…One Of THE Most Important Things In The Life Of A Military Person…

MAIL.

We’d Wait In Line For However Long It Might Take Just At The Off Chance We’d Receive Something.

MAIL-CALL

…Meant EVERYTHING To Some Of Us, Fo SHO!!!

The Bottom Aircraft (called a Prowler if I remember correctly) Was Used For Radar Jamming Purposes.

Since I Honestly Can’t Remember Exactly I Shall Leave It There And Simply Say…

…I Hope You Like These Two Pics.

I Enjoy Them Very Much So.

In The Hangar: Part 2: An F-14 TOMCAT Being Serviced

Click The Picture If You Wanna Get A Little Closer.

I Tried To Leave This One As Large As Possible So Y’all Could See It Up-Close And Personal.

And…

…For Those Of You Wondering…

…YES…

…The F-14 TOMCAT Was The Jet Flown By TOM CRUISE And The Like In The Film…

TOP GUN

…So You Can Understand How Exciting This Was For Me To See, As I Said, Up-Close And Personal.

Hope You Dig It, My Peeps!!!

In The Hangar: Part 1: Sardines

Packed In Like Sardines, Aren’t They.

That’s How You Travel Aboard A Ship Like The U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln.

With Over 5,000 People On-Board When The Air-Wing Is Tagging Along…

…Space Is VERY Limited.

As I Said…

…Sardines…

…Alllll The Way!!!
