What’s Going on Here?

Another pic that begs for a caption:


It’s the Truman (CVN-75) conducting a rudder check during high-speed turns.  I’m thinking the rudders are working just fine if they’re still attached!  If you listen very carefully you can hear “Wipeout” playing in the background.  Keep in mind a CVN draws over 30′ below the waterline – this is not a Nautique in a skid, she’s pushing serious water.

See if you can spot the wakesurfer.

Uh, Skipper, this message just came from your wife — “Henry, get your butt back here RIGHT NOW!!”

This is what happens if you ignore a wave-off from the LSO.
