Impressive Photo

Just had to share this photo. Half of the US Navy’s Aircraft Carriers and half of their big deck Amphibs, in a single photo, all tied up in Norfolk.

“Also across Hampton Roads but not in these photos are two other carriers at Newport News Shipbuilding: ┬áTHEODORE ROOSEVELT (CVN 71), now finishing up a three-and-a-half-year refueling overhaul, and the new GERALD R. FORD (CVN 78), first ship of a new class of carriers, that will launch in mid-2013.”

Good thing the Coast Guard is still on watch.

  1. Beautiful pictures indeed, can’t say I’m overly enthused with nearly 10 carriers stationed in one area. Hate to mention it, but reminiscent of a time in December a long while ago. Coast Guard better stay on their toes.

    • You are not the first to remark on the resemblance to Ford Island on Dec. 7. One comment I saw was that Mayport had just been handed the best possible justification for moving the homeport of one or more carriers to Mayport.
