The flight deck!
It was empty but it was HUGE! Four and a half acres ready for a little jet propulsion activity...
Many of the Navy personnel were hard at work painting, cleaning, protecting the ship.
Prior to any take offs a sweep of the deck is done by a line of sailors looking
for any small object that could be quite the hazard on jet takeoffs.
Imagine scanning four and a half acres over and over again!
Looking back at the Island where the main operations take place.
I don't envy the Admiral of a ship like this.
They have so much at stake at any given minute.
Thanks to all the Navy and any Military for all of their service!
