CVN-68 NIMITZ - Somewhere in the Indian Ocean - Nov 09

Postby MasterJet on Fri 13 Nov 2009, 10:48 am

In November I was lucky to arrange my second embark for this year...this time the Carrier was the Nimitz with all the Carrier Air Wing 11 at play in the 5th Fleet area.

Thanks to our US Navy escorts on the Nimitz...the visit was excellent!!!

Here are some pictures from a total of 15 giga :D ...hope you enjoy this short preview!
