Default Hangar Deck of the Carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower

Check out these pics of the hangar deck on board the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. Then take a look further down the page at the hangar deck on the flagship carrier of the Russian navy, Admiral Kuznetzov. Tight doesn't begin to describe the space on the Russky carrier... Chinese and Indian carriers are said to be virtually the same in terms of hangar space, which makes sense considering they are for all intents and purposes clones of the Russian flat tops.

It says that during the Cold War the Nimitz class carriers could accommodate up to 90 aircraft but how many could actually fit inside the hangar deck..??

...that one day I will see many more colorful JC Wings MD-11 models and the long-awaited Gemini 200 TWA twin stripes 727-200!

I always fly America's favorite airline: Southwest Airlines and the World's oldest KLM!

Paris was the greatest city on earth! Vive la France! Tokyo 2020!
