Guys,
Last March I was fortunate enough to be part of USS Enterprise (CVN-65) Final ever combat deployment.

On-board under CVW-1 was VAW-123 "Screwtops" the final Hawkeye Squadron to operate on Big E’s Flight Deck. Here is a selection from my time spent with the unit during this Historic Cruise:-

A superb pictorial account.i really like the one of the LSOs in the low sunlight.
If a man speaks in the middle of a forest and no woman can hear him, is he still wrong?
