Step back in time and onto Carrier Ops in Vietnam


Carrier operations are an amazing thing.  Hundreds of operations happen on a very small space of deck.  Aircraft land and takeoff on a bobbing postage stamp that bobs up and down in a sometimes violent sea.  This five minute video is a gem.  It features operations that took place on the USS Independence during the Vietnam war (along with a short scene of the E-2 shot post Vietnam).  If you want to see more, check out the full 28 minute video from the San Diego Air and Space Museum here.
