USS Carl Vinson aircraft images

I visited the US Aircraft Carrier USS Carl Vinson today while it was docked in the UAE. I have started putting them images on the AMI Facebook page but will eventually add them to photobucket as well.

That dust storm made it on the news here - wonder how many man hours it took the crew to clean the aircraft after that!

Great set, that Sunliner CAG jet is something else!!!!!!!!!!

I agree, some great images there Harvs. Would have loved the opportunity to get on-board.
Cheers,

The only reason I managed to get on the trip was my SGT received the email and I was sitting next to him when he asked for nominations, strangely enough my name was put forward straight up! :-)

I would normally let my soldiers get in first for trips but I wasn't going to miss out on this one (for obvious reasons).

It would have been great to add the Carl Vinson to the list of carriers I've been on. I haven't been on a CVN yet but managed to see the Forrestal, Constellation and Ranger up close and personal. I just wish they allowed more numbers out to her than what they did.
