CV-66, thank you.

The Air Force talks about the earsplitting noise from its jet engines as "The Sound of Freedom." Good. But I prefer aircraft carriers, like USS America, CV-66

September, 1985: the US Navy pushed a flattop, USS America CV-66, into the Norwegian Sea and commenced various flight operations.

Part of the ocean safari for CV-66 included being parked a while in the Vestfjord of Norway, between Bodø and the Lofoten Islands, which every Lofot-man knows is a short flight to interesting sights like Murmansk.

A difficult naval exercise and a good strategy. DN-SC-86-03144

Thank you, CV-66 and all its crew!
