USS Midway - Part 3

More pictures from the Midway.

This is the landing guide. It replaces the guys that used to use paddles in the past. The center set of lights tell you where you are in relation to the glide scope. The other lights tell you other things.

A CH-47 Sea Knight. This particular helicopter was used for replenishment.

An E-2 Hawkeye. This aircraft is a carrier based radar plane.

An A-7 Corsair II. This aircraft is sometimes refered to as SLUF (short little ugly feller).

An F-8 Crusader. This aircraft was supersonic capable.

A shot of the radar.

A guide to signal flags. The message says, "Our Phantoms Dont Say Boo".
