SkyWatch Friday #58
We enjoyed a beautiful clear sky in San Diego last weekend while touring the USS Midway and museum. It was a perfect day to be out on the harbor and walking in the gentle breezes across the flight deck of this mighty naval carrier. This ship has a 47- year odyssey that stretched from the end of WWII to the liberation of Kuwait in 1991. An odyssey shared by 225,000 sailors whose average age was 20. No other aircraft carrier served America as long as the USS Midway. She was decommissioned in San Diego in 1992 and opened as a museum in 2004.
These photographs were taken while walking around the flight deck of the USS Midway against a clear blue sky.
