Takeoff!

Last month, I was fortunate to get to spend a few days aboard the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier. It was an absolutely amazing experience, and one that I’ve had a difficult time putting into words so you can understand what it was like.

In this particular video, you can see how close I was to the aircraft as it took off. To be standing there witnessing it from that close of a distance defies explanation – and words.

Have you ever been aboard an aircraft carrier? Have you been fortunate to be able to watch the precise maneuvers that take place aboard them? The teamwork to get even one of these babies off the ‘ground’ is seemingly effortless. I am in complete awe every time I think back on the experience, and watch these videos.
