- So basically curvy .
- its muh genetics shitloard
- Can anyone fill me in to what the vertical structures are at the water line? I've always wondered and can't find anything.
- I think it is just support structure/bumpers for the stern dock. Here seen from the other side http://www.navy.mil/view_image.asp?id=55253
- Awesome, makes sense. Thank you
- Yeah, I always wondered what those were also. They look like the hatch for a well deck when you view them from a distance, but that makes no sense whatsoever. Bumpers makes sense.
- Can confirm, just bumpers. Gotta make sure the liberty boats don't get messed up in HK.
- I had a question. What are those folks on the top deck of a carrier who tells the fighter pilots using hand signs called? They wear a face mask/helmet also. EDit they are called 'shooters'
- I'm not too good with planes, but are those still F-14's there? Didn't they get ride of them around that time?
- they retired the F-14 in Sept. 2006
- IIRC The last F-14 flew off the deck in spring of 2005 when we were returning from deployment... Guess that means Im technically in this picture... lol. 😉
- Correct. I did a tiger cruise on the Truman in 2005 and they did the last trap of an F-14 at that time. They were supposed to cat it off, but the kneeling (valve?) failed, as is apparently common on the Tomcat, so they ended up craning off the very last F-14 that the Truman ever carried. I was sad for it.
- I do remember that. My dad didnt want to miss anything on the deck and stayed up there so long his bald spot blistered. It was sad seeing the F-14 go out like but it was pretty awesome to sit on the deck during the take off and landing portion of the show. I worked below deck so even during deployment I never really was able to make it to vultures row and see the action.
- Yes the two planes on the right are F-14s
- They're still used by the Iranian Air Force (:
- I read that the Iranian air force attacked ISIS with F4 Phantoms most recently. Did they have F-14's as well? I thought they had some but none were battle worthy. Read more comments
