Big Island

U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist Seaman George M. Bell

The command island on the U.S.S. Carl Vinson (CVN-70) dwarfs man and machine on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier.

If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you can clearly see a SH-60 Seahawk helicopter (right foreground) two E-2C Hawkeye airborne early warning aircraft and on the very far left an EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft. You can also see the tractors used to haul aircraft around the flight deck.

The Nimitz-class carrier recently arrived in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii after completing  deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet (Indian Ocean and Middle East) and U.S. 7th Fleet (Asia-Pacific) areas of responsibility.

To get a better idea of the enormity of this super carrier, click on the photo below.
