I’ve got the images, stories, behind-the-scenes shots, and even some short videos from my trip out the USS Harry S. Truman last week. Lots of fun stuff to share, and I laid out the images using Adobe Spark Page (about the best way to share your photography work online):

    Fantastic!! Just watched Top Gun on a flight yesterday and loved the carrier images. I was wondering if they replaced the Signal men/women with computers. This answered my question perfectly!!
    The photos are so wonderful. Thanks, Scott.

      I was in the navy back in 1962- 1966 have a lot of film taken on board the helo of AC taking off and landing. Wouldn’t they let you film from the helo?

    Awesome photos and story to go along with them! What a treat and privilege to get to go out there as a civilian and shoot. You handled like a champ!

    When I was stationed on the USS Sampson (DDG-10) we did ops alongside the USS Saratoga (CV-60) during the Gulf War and it was the second loudest sound I’d ever heard. I can’t imagine what it was like on the deck during flight ops. Wow! The loudest sound I’ve ever heard was when I was stationed on the USS New Jersey (BB-62) and we fired off all nine 16″ guns at the same time. But that was just one big BOOM, not the continuous roar of jets taking off and landing.

    Your photos of the crew and below decks took me back 20 years in time. Thanks for that!

    Great shots! The people make the story. Edward Steichen’s quote certainly rings true. Love the action and interaction.

    Scott, what an amazing opportunity. You put together a great pictorial story that truly did show the great men and women of our Navy and in particular the USS Harry S. Truman. Loved every bit of it. Excellent work!
