1942 – OPERATION TORCH
En route to North Africa, ordnance men boresight the machine guns of VF-9 (foreground) and VF-41 (background) F4F-4s. It is worth noting that, while both squadrons share the yellow surround on fuselage National Insignia, although this photo appears censored, each VF-9 aircraft originally carried full squadron modex (9-F-20, etc.) while VF-41 carry only individual side numbers.

Big E Comes Home

The USS Enterprise (CV-6) suffered from a horrendous kamikaze attack while operating off of Okinawa on 14 May 1945. The evidence of the damage she received can be seen in the photo above from June of 1945, after she had returned to Puget Sound Navy Yard for repairs. Most notably, her forward elevator is missing. It was blown out of her flight deck by force of the explosion caused by the kamikaze hitting the carrier. Crew members can be seen offloading ammunition from the stern while other Enterprise sailors are seen disembarking from the stricken carrier onto the City of Sacramento, the ferry coming alongside. Once she was finished being prepared for dry dock at Puget Sound, she would remain there until September of 1945 when her repairs were finally completed. The 14 May kamikaze attack proved to be the blow that finally knocked the Navy’s most decorated carrier out of the war.

The USS Bunker Hill (CG-52) pulls along side of the USS Independence.
Lots of respect to the crews of the small boys. They would be rocking and rolling in heavy seas as we just plowed through the big waves.

75 years ago today, the USS Intrepid was commissioned. Built in Newport News, VA, the "Fighting I" became famous for its service in World War II, but it spent more than 30 years in US Navy service, thanks to a series of refits. Two of those refits, in 1955 and 1965, were done at the @bklynnavyyard. The 1955-56 SCB-125 upgrade gave the carrier its angled flight deck and enclosed hurricane bow. In 1965, Intrepid was part of the Fleet Rehabilitation and Modernization Program (FRAM II), which overhauled its flight operations systems, boilers, and structure. This photo shows two additions while Intrepid was in dry dock in Brooklyn, the sonar bow and new centerline bow anchor. The ship was at the Brooklyn Navy Yard from April to September 1965, and the FRAM II refit was the last major job done by the Yard before its decommissioning in June 1966. @intrepidmuseum is holding special events this week to mark the commissioning anniversary, and you can join our tours of the Brooklyn Navy Yard every weekend to learn more about its rich history of "Serving the Fleet."

The 24" porter model C is an awesome machine.

Sounds like an air raid siren but mills smooth and flat every time without fail.

One year ago today, the @RoyalNavy’s new aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth as she sailed into her home port of Portsmouth for the first time. To do so she sailed down a channel dredged by DIO, guided by navigational aids we installed, before berthing at a jetty DIO renovated. You can see the jetty - the Princess Royal jetty - on the left of this image. #throwbackthursday

HMS Queen Elizabeth is currently undergoing sea trials and will soon be beginning trials with the F-35B multi-role combat aircraft.
