USS Nimitz ACTION in the Persian Gulf…

Post by Airshow Action »

Hello Scramble friends,

Today exactly 12 years ago (25th & 26th of May 2007) I had the opportunity to visit the USS Nimitz (WESTPAC-07 Tour) in the Persian Gulf in full operation!! (for the 2nd time!!)
Here a quick selection of 63 photos (re-editing and some new pictures)

Some more (2007old/edit/scans!!) go here:

enjoy

greetings

Peter Steehouwer

great mix between spotter-pics and and a 'mainstream' report including human interest. A joy to watch, well done Peter!
