Eric, the photo was posted on 6/21/2015 and you are right! We had a squadron of Crusaders on board, along with F4 Phantoms, an A3J Vigilante, A-6 Intruders & some A-4 Sky Hawks. Those were the days!

Walt the F8s have all gone to the boneyard have they not?

F4s are current I think.

Hard to believe they're still flying "Fords". I was blown away by the F4s vertical climb out at North Island. Watched them at night on night check on the flight line. With a low ceiling they would disappear going straight up into the clouds. I was an electronics tech ASW 2nd PO. 1961 - 1964.

I see you're on the thread creep patrol again Bob.

And it may be just beginning. Perhaps TF should capitalize on your habits and make you a moderator?

Also I could add that thread creep is not the topic of this thread either.

Eric--- F-4s have been out of service for decades. A few other countries may still have them in their Air Forces but I suspect not.

I spent a week filming on board the USS Constellation back in the mid-1980s out in the Pacific. The fighters were F-14s, the attack planes were A-6s, the jammers were EA-6Bs, and the airborne control planes were Grumman turboprop E-2s. The newest plane in the lineup at that time was the F-18 (the Constellation was the first carrier to have its catapults modified to take the F-18, which is why we were out there.)

Today the F-14s are gone, replaced by a variant of the F-18. The EA-6B is gone, replaced by another variant of the F-18. And the A-6 is gone, replaced by the FA-18. The Navy is awaiting its version of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

Personally I have always found it very difficult to get a shot of any boat I've ever owned under way, because I'm the main pic taker, and when we are under way, I'm always driving as well.

Sadly when and where we have boated, there are few folk we know well enough to link up with who could do the honours, as it were.

I did get one such pic of our first yacht thought. I was impressed. It was taken by a total stranger who snapped us returning up the channel to the boat ramp in our Tasman 20, when we were back in NZ, at the Napier Sailing Club. He sought us out at the ramp and gave us the pic some months later, saying he did it for fun, and because he knew how hard it was to get an on-the-move photo of ones boat, so he made it his 'thing'. I still have fond memories of that small act.

GFC,
I usually don't care much for boats of this type but this "Beachcomber" didn't even need to grow on me. I liked it immediately. Nice pics too. TWO thumbs up.

Thanks Eric. At times I feel like an intruder when I hang out here seeking wisdom. It's nice to hear your comment.

GFC,
I wouldn't be shy about parading that one around.
On a special note she has a big beautiful butterfly bow wave.
