Cleanliness is close to….

                                                       ….godliness

Or, so goes the aphorism.

In the United States Navy….you can replace godliness with….

                                                       ….readiness

Sailors aboard the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) scrub the flight deck with Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) during a flight deck wash down. The flight deck is scrubbed clean after the completion of flight operations to remove any fuel left behind from aircraft.

The jet fuel on the deck is not only flammable, but can be slippery and corrosive.

Planes launch and land aboard the super carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75)

F-14A BuNo 159832 side number 205, which on Jun. 29, 1991 experienced a mid-air collision over South Chinese Sea with another Tomcat, the BuNo 161597 side number 201. 

Both aircraft were from Black Lions of the VF-213, at the time embarked on the USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). While “201” crashed into the sea where the crew was rescued, the “205” was able to land in Singapore after losing part of its right wing.

USS Enterprise (CVN 65) Online Scavenger Hunt #2
USS Enterprise (CVN 65) is one of the most revered ships in United States Navy history. As the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, she set the standard for the Navy throughout her storied career, making many historic firsts during her active duty career from 1962 to 2012. In recent years, she has been on inactive, stand-down status, undergoing the laborious process of defueling her eight nuclear reactors. NHF’s relationship with Enterprise dates to the Vietnam War-era. Then-Captain James L. Holloway, III (Former NHF President/Chairman) served as Enterprise’s third Commanding Officer. In recent years, NHF helped sponsor the historical room on Enterprising in 2000-2001. From 2008-2015, NHF hosted annual visits from Enterprise leadership award winners to the Washington Navy Yard. Enterprise remains a celebrated chapter in the history of the United States Navy spanning the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. In honor of her decommissioning this Friday (3 February 2017), we wanted to find a fun way for fans of naval history and Enterprise to test their knowledge of the ship utilizing the wealth of information available online.

PLAY THE SECOND SCAVENGER HUNT!

I’VE GOT YOUR BACK, XO
