Cool time lapse of an aircraft carrier being assembled piece by piece

Man, building an aircraft carrier is just like playing with Lego bricks! At a much, much larger scale, of course. Here is footage showing how the final section of the Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carrier the HMS Prince of Wales was slapped on top of the ship. The piece, known as Aft Island, weighs 750 tonnes and will control aircraft operations on the carrier.

This Airplane Looks Like It May Have Flown Back to the Future

We don’t know if Doc Brown worked on this F/A-18C Hornet, seen here taking off. We don’t know if it had a Flux capacitor on board.

However, we do know it looks like it’s leaving burning tire tracks in its wake, just like Doc Brown’s time-traveling DeLorean did in the Back to the Future movies, and we do know this looks awesome.

Packed Like Sardines in a Can

From this point of view it seems that one cannot fit a knife between two planes in the crammed hangar bay of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, where sailors perform maintenance on F/A-18 Super Hornets. Let’s play! How many aircraft can you count in this photo?

The perfection of jet takeoffs from aircraft carriers in one photo

Fighter jets and aircraft carriers and fighter jets taking off of aircraft carriers are some of our favorite things in the world for so many reasons. One of them is just how perfect each launch has to be. Just look at how the wheels of the jet reach the end of the aircraft carrier as the fighter jet achieves lift off.

This Nuclear Carrier Is Leaving the Atomic Winter Behind

NASA Captured the Lonely Last Journey of an Aircraft Carrier

NASA Captured the Lonely Last Journey of an Aircraft Carrier

This is the loneliest funeral march I've ever seen. This photo from November 5th was taken during a NASA mission called Operation IceBridge, the goal of which is to survey polar ice. But it also captured the aircraft carrier USS Constellation (CV-64), a Kitty Hawk-class supercarrier being towed by a comparatively tiny tugboat. The Constellation is destined for demolition after 41 years of commissioned service and 11 years of retirement. The huge Navy vessel will be scrapped at Brownsville, Texas, after towed around Cape Horn on her final voyage. [NASA Goddard Space Flight Center]

Sometimes even giants need a little tenderness.

Sometimes even giants need a little tenderness. Just look at the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) transiting the Elizabeth River, at Portsmouth, Va., shepherded by four tiny tugboats. The huge vessel was photographed en route to Norfolk Naval Shipyard, on November 5th. [Mass Communication Specialist Seaman Justin R. Pacheco/U.S. Navy]
