Aircraft carrier-USS Abraham Lincoln


Today I was at Harborview Park near Everett, WA. This is a favorite slope-soaring place for local RC flyers. The aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln was leaving the Navy base in Everett! Put my camera into my Big-Wing EasyStar and took some pictures. Still having problems with my Casio EX-S10 due to some hard landings but these didn't come out too bad.

Once upon a time when-ever large ships like this went to see they were followed by lots of small craft. I bet that is discouraged now. I wonder if you got your plane too close if they would have shot it down?

Jeff,

There were quite a few small boats in the harbor. There were also a couple Coast Guard escort ships plus several helicopters. I did wonder if perhaps it was not as good idea to fly! In the past they have had Navy personnel stationed at Harborview Park in tents during times when the country was on a higher "alert" status.
I made a point of not flying out too far towards the ship.
The pictures do not convey how enormous these things really are.
