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!!!

A Lone Photo From The Navy Days That I’ve Always Liked.

Original Photos By Bradley Alan

This One Is A Shot Of An F-18 Hornet…

…With The Pilot Standing Idly By…

…As We Float Past A Foreign Coastline.

I’m Unsure If You’ve Noticed Or Not…

…But I’m LOVING The Fact I’m Finally Getting To Show Off These Pics.

Trust Me, It Makes Me Feel Gratified…

…And MUCH Better.

*** *** ***

Well, My Peeps…

…I Should Try Sleeping Again.

Not Havin’ Much Luck, Tonight…

…Hence My Working At Just Shy Of 2’a.m.

Okie The Dokie, Kiddies…

…Hope You’re ALL Sleeping Well Enough To Call It Acceptable.

I’m Hoping It’s MY Turn, Next!!!

Fun Stuff, My Peeps, Fo SHO!

I’ve Got So Many Photos Of So Many Neato Things/People/Places/Etc/Etc That I Sincerely Didn’t Know What I Was Ever Going To Do With Them.

I’m Glad I’m Getting The Chance To Now Show Them Off.

Why Not, Right?!?

RIGHT!!!
