Just how it is with the Navy these days. Even when there is good news, there is still bad news.
1000 launches, 1000 landings, flight deck certified. Of course, it is still too deficient in other areas to actually deploy yet, but wow, an aircraft carrier that can actually launch and land aircraft, who would have thunk it.
The crappers aren’t doing very well. Oh well, its only maintenance money.
The Sailors will just have to hang their asses out over the flight deck, men to starboard, women to port.
