Having CVN-68 in the dry dock and ready to go brings out incredible possibilities to expand beyond YAP2. Colmack has some great ideas, a combo of RS and the Nimitz "The Final Countdown" man, that's great. Colmack, also brought up operation up Operation El-Dorado Canyon, on April 15 1986, once the USS America CV-66 with CVW-1 (Tail Code (AE) is ready, bring in the USS Saratoga CV-60 with CVW-17 Tail Code (AA) and USS Coral Sea CV-43 with CVW-13 Tail Code (AK), you have great mission set's, first combined strike of multiple platforms F-14A,A-6E,A-7E & F/A-18A and USAF with F-111F's. Now back to the USS Nimitz, could this open up, any possibilities of Nimitz class carriers incorporated into future mission sets.?
A pair of VF-41 F-14's VF-41 from the USS Nimitz CVN-68 where involved in the 1981 Gulf of Sidra shoot down of two Libyan SU-22 Fitters.
In 1989 another pair of VF-32 F-14's from the USS Kennedy CV-67,shoot down two Mig-23's in the gulf of Sidra.
If the USS Roosevelt CVN-71, can join the fleet, along with the existing fleet of carriers, we can have look at mission sets for the 1991 Gulf war Operation Desert Storm, and the 1985 Operation Allied Force. And, at the start of Operation Enduring Freedom from the USS Enterprise CVN-65 after September 11, 2001.
8 LIEN had posted a pair of screen shots picture of the Enterprise with F-14's on her flight deck, is this from the first operational deployment of the F-14 for the evacuation of Saigon, from the west pack cruise in 1974, did they mix the F-4's and F-14's in the same air wing.?
Thanks for keeping us fans updated with those great screen shots, and the lates developments.
