    The carrier is USS George Washington (CVN 73).

    And just remember, boys and girls, there are two types of ships in the world: submarines and targets.

    It would be fucken awesome to be able to fly like that. Damn shame that the technology wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for the need/desire to kill people as efficiently as possible.

    Last summer we were standing on the rim of the Columbia River gorge in central Washington state and a couple of those jets — F/A-18’s — came by. Well down in the canyon, so that we were looking at the top of them. The canyon makes a 90 degree turn at that point, so did the jets. The whole encounter didn’t last but about 15 seconds before they were gone.

    Our location, if you’re interested, was about here:
    47°13’47.22″ N 119°59’54.47″ W
