Howdy folks. I just got back from a 2 week detachment onboard the USS Abraham Lincoln. It was just a work up for deployment, so everyone can get all the necessary quals and training in preparation for the long haul. Seeing as it was my first time on a ship, it was a hell of an experience. I snagged some pics to share with everyone. It's SO nice to be home On to the pics: My squadron's aircraft. Meet the F/A-18E Super Hornet. Afterburner on the cat shot Crossing the fantail during recovery And snagging the wire A Seahawk touching down on the flight deck 2 Hornets doing a flyby after the last aircraft left the deck on our way home EA-6B Prowler parked aft of the island Legacy Hornet on its way home Another shot of a Legacy Hornet (F/A-18C) on approach An E-2C Hawkeye sitting on Cat 2 Launching for the last time and heading back to Lemoore, our CAG bird waiting on Cat 2 I took this standing on the bow, looking aft. You can see the USS Ronald Reagan in the background.
