A few weeks ago I was able to spend some time on the Aircraft Carrier USS Bush. I went down to Norfolk with our Boy Scout troop and toured a few ships, saw a few of the aircraft and got to eat and spend the night on the carrier. We had a retired 2 star admiral in our group that set the whole thing up for us but I believe the Navy will make special accomodations for any Boy Scout troop. I took a few close up shots of some of the aircraft that are stationed with the carrier. Here are a few of the shots.
I thought the propellers on this plane were very unusual but looked really cool under the big disc that is used for communications.
This is a F-18. It was also very cool and the best part was that you could walk right up to it and touch it. Now imagine being seated in this bad boy going Mach 2. Now that would be a dream of mine.
Here’s the F-18 again with the sun right behind it. That how youo lose the enemy, youu fly right into the sun.
And here’s the best part of all these photos. They were edited with the New Photoshop CS6 Beta. Starting in camera raw and finishing in Photoshop.
