    Hate to be a buzz kill on such a great thread but this my man is a Russian MIG 29 Fulcrum. Not quite one of ours.

    Not a problem just great military photos and the one of the battle ship is off coast of VIET NAM

    We did capture a few Soviet aircraft and have them on display.

    We also landed several C-130s on our flight deck. Several other carriers landed them also. They were US AIR FORCE PILOTS :eek: Only had 12 feet clearance from wing to island....:D Damn good flying/landing. Fully loaded tankers they were.

    Whoops, sorry! :eek:

    I'm not very much into these aircraft (as you can probably tell) but I love your pictures all the same :)

    Love the photos. There are some really great ones in there. Thanks for posting.
    But to be honest; when I saw these two, my first thought here was "Gees, they need to get some cleaner burning powder".
    But then again, what do I know?
