Fantastic article about the technical parts of the #VinsonEmbark

"The “Choreography in Air Superiority” we witnessed was impressive, dramatic, flawless (thank God!) — flight deck crew members donning various colored shirts designating their specific roles gave a new meaning to “Teamwork” … where one mistake could mean tragedy to deck crew and pilots as F/A-18 Hornets and Super Hornets trap landed within minutes of each other, were taxied to parking spots on the deck (literally with tail hanging over the edge), and were ultimately led to elevators destined for the Hanger Bays below deck. The whole process repeated itself again and again as the planes were then catapulted off the deck from 0 to 140 mph in just two seconds!"
