128 pp, square (9 1/4" H x 9 1/4" D). Profusely illustrated with color photographs. "The aircraft carrier is many things apart from a ship. It is a floating airbase, a symbol of power and a seagoing home to more than 5,000 men. In fact, the crew complement of a carrier is three times that of the biggest battle-ship of the 1940s. Every member of the crew, from the captain to the commander of the air wing to the first-cruise enlisted man, is trained in and works in the culture of naval aviation, a culture that addresses the demands of survival in the world's two most unforgiving professions: seamanship and aviation. Watching some of the inhabitants of this small city gives some idea of the challenges they routinely face in their day-to-day work. (This) is an outsider's look inside. Renowned 'Time' photographer Neil Leifer went onboard USS Carl Vinson, America's largest nuclear-powered carrier to photograph 'a day in the life of' feature. This is what he saw. Aviation specialist Bill Sweetman saw these superb, graphic photographs and captioned them with near classified detail. So that every enthusiast, avid or simply passing, could draw interest and knowledge from within." Bump to top of spine, light edge wear. Dust jacket has light edge wrinkling/creasing - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, one small edge tear archivally taped.
