    Amphibious Assault Ship USS America Arrives In Japan https://news.usni.org/2019/12/06/amphibious-assault-ship-uss-america-arrives-in-japan

    so she'd been doing about ten knots on average (yes, it's my speculation she took a direct route)"

    do you want me to walk you through this, show you about 4t nm between Hawaii and Japan etc.?

    please answer this

    Jura.. I really don't care. I served aboard 5 aircraft carriers. Their basic operational procedures have not changed much in the last few decades. I sincerely apologize if I've insulted you in any way in any matter we've discussed.. I'm done discussing this matter.

    Right down to the warning message on the wing: a sophisticated "Not to be walked on" as opposed to a blunt "No step" :D

    I spent some time aboard the CdG earlier this week

    Teaser video on PEAN19, a major French Navy training exercise which goal is to maintain the qualifications of the carrier strike group. Naval News was aboard aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle and will soon publish several video interviews.

    hope you sang there

    revving up you engine,
    listen to her howling roar,
    metal under tension,
    begging her to touch and go,
    highway to the danger zone ... LOL!

    So the muck in the water is from the starboard thrusters? and the tugs in the process of berthing her?? I'm assuming she has maneuvering jets?? probably wrong though?? LOL

    anyway, moving those chicks requires a lot of thrust, they don't slide sideways through the water easily, takes much less thrust to forge "ahead".

    Haha thank you and yes that is me.

    I wasn't planning on covering the invictus games, but I'll be back in Rotterdam in June for an event called "UDT" undersea defence technology
