    Start to finish deployment on USS Vinson: Fortress at Sea

    Best video I've seen that covers life on board a carrier during a 6 moth Persian Gulf cruise and the daily grind of some of the jobs. Besides the issues of flight deck ops, it covers a fire/explosion on a jet going supersonic and the recovery of the pilot, a man overboard by a crew member who couldn't handle the stress, the flight ops in the Persian Gulf, a plane going into the drink on launch, and the reasons carriers meet a military need that can't be met any other way. It also shows some of the pilots being obsoleted and basically forced out of the Navy, because their plane is being retired and they're too old to switch to a new plane
    Shows the good and the bad about Navy life at sea.

    Good video but long about an hour and a half.

    Very cool!

    1Pe 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore of sound mind, and be sober unto prayer

    Joh 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
    Joh 3:17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him.
