USS Ronald Reagan CVN76 2007 airshow at sea

The airshow in 3 minutes. USS Ronald Reagan CVN76 during the 2007 Tiger Cruise. This video is edited from 2 days of flight operations in the Pacific Ocean and one of those days was rainy and windy. If there is a 15 knot headwind and the carrier is traveling at about 30 knots into the wind for flight operations, you are standing in a 45 knot (51.75 MPH) wind on the flight deck, combine this with prop wash or engine exhaust and you could be standing in hurricane force winds! These people do this day and night in all kinds of weather, impressive. And they do it all without steroids, big paychecks, fame or endorsements. Remember them the next time you call a professional sports figure a hero.
