    Just to give you an idea of the size of the Nimitz, here's a photo of the Ark Royal and the Nimitz side by side in Norfolk Virginia in 1978, it's flight deck was at least 1 or 2 decks above ours.

    Doug,
    I stand humbly corrected. But you are right. Still impressive. I would love to be aboard for trials, just once.

    Great vid Jonathan๐Ÿ‘
    But not where my pic came from.
    My pic is of Nimitz, CVN68, the vid is of Gerald Ford CVN78, apparently doing similar trials.
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    How to do a handbrake turn in an aircraft carrier! I wonder if that's in the official manual.

    When the winds before the rain, soon you may make sail again, but when the rain's before the wind, tops'l sheets and halyards mind

    Aha! Your filing system is similar to mine Cam๐Ÿ‘
    Borrowed from Sherlock Holmes; depth of dust equates to date of filing!๐Ÿ˜
    Yes, I am actually in Mรผnchen, on the east side close to the Ostpark with lake and Biergarten.
    Prost! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    My humble abode/workshop is down near the bottom left hand corner of referenced Google Maps sat pic.

    Makes eminent sense Jonathan๐Ÿ‘ Thanks!
    Needs must when the devil drives!
    Speed was of the essence in such times.
    And simplicity of maintenance, commonality!, in the field would also have been a driving influence I guess.
    After all, all WE have to do in our models is reverse a couple of wire and change a prop!๐Ÿ˜
