Whole ‘nother kind of hot

Posted on June 25th, 2007 by lex

The flight deck of the USS Nimitz in the Arabian Gulf on 22 June 2007

(date edited to hide the previously classified existence of the Navy’s time machine), conducting operations in support of forces ashore.

You can almost feel it, can’t you? The steam coming up from the cats warring with the sun hammering down from on top and the JP-5 drenched heat coming off the jets turning on the roof?

If that’s the first launch of the day, it’s probably only 105 degrees or so up on deck – it’ll get warmer in a while –  and the Fly 1 director there will probably get to go below in another 12 hours or so.

Good times.
