USS Midway

Two days ago we flew to San Diego, California . In San Diego there is a massive aircraft carrier ship called the USS Midway.P1040238

It saw action in the Persian Golf, when the ship was in battle there were planes landing every 45 seconds. The planes had to land in a space the size of a tennis court and not hit one of the 200 people on the flight deck, unlike at an airport, where there is nobody about and there’s a massive runway!

Some of the planes and helicopters had  fold up wings and rotors to increase spare space .

On the deck there was a plane  you could climb on.
