Organizing an aircraft carrier

Over the weekend I visited San Diego and the decommissioned aircraft carrier the USS Midway. It's now a museum and a pretty interesting place to explore. In addition to the top deck with its airplanes and helicopters on display, below decks are also open to the public and you can see everything from the sick bay to the laundry rooms. When active, this size of aircraft carrier holds about 4500 people. Imagine the systems that have to be in place to keep a city of people clothed, fed and well, in addition to all of the dangerous work they do of launching and landing planes from a relatively tiny speck in an ocean! Here are some of my favorite photos from the visit.

The bridge.

What every crew member was issued.

Always a good reminder.

Love the Plan Of The Day!
