"Rare opportunity aboard the USS Independence" Yokosuka by RoseAmano
Yokosuka Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 40 photos
I'm not even sure if these events are held anymore due to the current political situations in the world today, but on this day was an International Exchange Day whereby non-military guests could board, the carrier would set off, an amazing air show held, and then a celebration with an American style hot dog hamburger barbecue party.
It might be a no-brainer to some of you reading this, but I was so surprised at how these aeroplanes handle so differently than from the commercial jets we ride when we are non-virtual tourists. The acceleration is so quick and take-off is sudden!!! The return is just as quick and the sudden apperarence seemingly mind-boggling. At least you should be able to know what is coming your way as they are just as noisy as can be! Earplugs were were most kindly provided by our hosts, as it seems that ear protection is certainly a must!
