USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63)
On board during operations in the Pacific Ocean 17th - 19th July 2007
by Tim Beach
A photogaphic record of 3 days aboard the USS Kitty Hawk during operations 150 miles north east of Australia between 17th - 19th July 2007.
Includes extremely close up shots of both launch and recovery actiion .
The book also emphasises the 'human side' particularly the teamwork involved in efficiently running a front-line warship 24 hours a day and complemented by a crew of circa 5000 service personnel.
In summary, probably the best experience that I've ever had!
My main work is as an IT consultant but having had a strong interest in aviation and photography since a young age, I undertake a lot of photographic assignments. These are mainly aviation related but not exclusively as my photographic interest and capability is varied.
