        YUBORG! This is not just a bad omen, but tragic. Japanese, potential kamikaze. And where kamikaze of any type appeared, consider death. So the Americans will have to put an aircraft carrier either in the form of a floating nuclear power station in the department of Kiriyenko, or in the form of a museum somewhere in a resort town. The poor fellow departed.

      What does the "hand of Moscow" have to do with it? At the head of the Japanese, at the sight of such American power and from an excess of loyal feelings, a fart exploded. I should have followed him with a fire extinguisher ...

    Looks like he was a distant relative of Enola and Bokskar with their family values ​​that he could not stand such a shame and burned out at work at the sight of Japanese chief officers :)))

    Flame that after a while managed to put out by the forces of the team, it caused damage not only to the Grumman E-2 Hawkeye, but also to the aircraft carrier itself.
    It's a pity.

    The hand of Moscow is long. It will reach any organism, wherever it stumbles. Takes and eliminates. Or a verbanet. Remember, remember E. Sudoplatova. Let the enemies be afraid, and we sleep peacefully. Well, what can you do if these people justly do not want to live? Well, they can’t just be different. Aggression in their blood. So for every nut we select a bolt.

    Apologists for aircraft carriers. This is not the first or last fire on them. Aircraft carrier is a very flammable thing. On July 29, 1967, a certain dumbass McCain pulled a missile from the parking lot on the other side of the deck aboard the Forrestal aircraft carrier, as a result of which 134 people were burned and 161 were injured, dozens of aircraft were also burned or damaged.

      All ships are fire hazardous things. Fires on the Kyrgyz Republic, EM, BOD, FR and TFR occur no less frequently. Even fires occurred on the LC ... or worse - explosions.

      By the way, Forrestal survived, was renovated and continued to serve until it was decommissioned in 1993.

      Of course, I understand that McCain any bast in line - but he is not involved in this fire. Moreover, he was the injured party.
      The fire provoked the launch of the NAR from a "phantom" w / n 110 or a "skyhock" w / n 410. The rocket flew over the deck and hit the "skyhawk" w / n 405, next to which there was McCain's skyhawk w / n 416.
      There were three reasons for the fire:
      1. Gross violation by the deck-based safety team and instructions for the suspension of ammunition: the electrical cable was not connected to the NAP unit on the catapult, as the instruction prescribed, but directly when the unit was suspended. Any power surge led to a start.
      2. Unsuccessful design of fuses: due to the large sailness of the flags attached to them, they self-pulled out in the wind. They wanted the best (the flag is clearly visible and shows that the fuse is not removed) - but it turned out as always. smile
      As a result, the planes in the flight deck stands were in the position of gunfighters aiming at each other and keeping their fingers on the triggers. Any sneeze - and ... "Prepare three coffins ... Mistake, four".
      3. Old bombs (1953), which, due to the characteristics of the explosives used, exploded when heated. New bombs with a new explosive simply faded.

    It's a pity that the presentation of the newest cage "USS Ronald Reagan" for breeding the Far Eastern crab did not take place in the waters of Tokyo Bay.

    And the plane is certainly good, yes ...
    We would certainly not be hurt in the Arctic.
    Not all the same A-50 to drive.
