Best Desk Ever!

Thursday, January 21, 2010
So here's a picture of the real deal.  One of the baddest things on the planet - a dang aircraft carrier.  I've spent most of my Navy career flying on and off of these floating cities.  Including the Airwing personnel, there are about 5,000 people who deploy on an aircraft carrier.  This picture is of the USS JOHN F KENNEDY - better known as "Big John."  I've done two 6 month deployments aboard Big John.  I've also done long deployments aboard the aircraft carriers GEORGE WASHINGTON and THEODORE ROOSEVELT.  I've done carrier qualifications (CQ) and other operations aboard the CARL VINSON, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, CONSTELLATION, ENTERPRISE, RONALD REAGAN and JOHN C. STENNIS.  I might be forgetting some others.  All of the different "boats" just kind of blend together over time.  In total, I have over 800 carrier arrested landings - better known as traps.  It's a strange thing trying to sleep with airplanes landing on top of your head.

Big John

So check out this awesome aircraft carrier desk:

It's even got the night time running lights like on the real carrier.

That's gotta be one of the coolest things I've ever seen.  I'm in lust.  Until next time -- C2
