CARRIER PROBLEM

Recommended Posts

Just a Note to the ACES FOLKS. I noticed after landing on a carrier that there were rails around the flight deck. I was on the Carl Vinson CVN-70 for 2 years on the flight deck and can tell you there are NO rails. If you fall or get blown off your just going to have to swim until the chopper plucks you out.V-4 Grape!
