Aircaft carriers making a turn (8 pics)

Here are some great pictures of aircraft carriers taking a turn. I can’t imagine how long and how difficult it must be to make a turn with such huge boats.

Most of these are pictures of sea trials of carriers prior to final delivery to the Navy.

I used to be on the USS Constellation and USS Enterprise both aircraft carriers. I can tell you that these types of moves and turns are not everyday. Typically they are done as the poster above says in sea trials and periodically during the life of a ship when an inspection called INSERV takes place. INSERV is an inspection to see if the ship is still seaworthy enough to stay in services and they put the ship through the wringer for about 3 days. These high speed turns are part of that evolution. These turns look to be a speeds of about 30 knots and as they heel over to port or starboard the entire ship shakes like it is coming apart. But as you can see these are tough built ships and they can withstand the strain.

I went through in INSERV insepction on the USS Enterprise once and we actually had the ship going backwards at a fairly good speed. I wont reveal that speed as the ship is still in service and I dont know if it is classifies or not. When the ship makes these turns you sometimes feel as if it will roll over but it doesnt.

Go navy........we have the best built ships in the world........
