The following is a brief video of nuclear aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) conducting high speed turns shortly after completing a two-year repair period. The video was released by Navy on Thursday via Facebook.

    Yes, the video is cool, but even cooler would have been seeing the wake that Ike was churning up.

    You can still play Pool on it (I exaggerate, But) now try that little maneuver on a Destroyer or better yet a Destroyer Escort (oops, sorry, a Fast Frigate) and see how much material the crew has to restow (stay out of the Galley, it’s almost like a GBU went off in there).

    Looks like the IKE could dodge another ship, but probably not a torpedo?

    I’m sort of curious, as to why there was Absolutely No Motion To the F/A-18C’s Sitting on the Flight Deck. Even if “Tied Down”, there should have be some kind of Visible Rocking Motion.
