Something new and something old          Page 1         October 2012  

I get emails everyday just like everybody else does but once in awhile they are so cool that it's a shame to delete them once you've passed them on to other people. What I've done here is saved the pictures and the information so I could share them with all of you. I haven't altered the pictures or touched them up in anyway so what you see is just how I received them. I hope you appreciate them as much as I have, enjoy!

Ships and a New Jet Fighter

3 Carrier Groups: Those of you who were in the service or who like boats, ships and planes will appreciate this. Three carriers and the new fighter jet.



The plane in these pictures is still officially the 'Air Vehicle Number 1', a prototype on board the USS George Washington CVN-73 for catapult fit checks. Not exactly Top Secret but certainly not yet made public. It will be known as the F/A-37, although specs are classified it is believed to be Mach 3.5 (top speed in the Mach 4 range) super-cruise stealth fighter/bomber/interceptor with approximately a 4,000nm range.





The Navy test pilot is LT Kara Wade in the cockpit of the F/A-37.



For the first time in over 20 some odd years, three carrier strike groups got together in formation. From top to bottom are the aircraft carriers, Abraham Lincoln , Kitty Hawk and Ronald Reagan.





We even had Air Force planes fly-over, with a B-2 Stealth Bomber. The only warships not seen in the photos are the 4 nuclear powered submarines standing guard.
