as far as i know, they're pretty good tied on the deck, and i suppose those just there for the reason, that the hangar might've been full. but even if not, i don't think the navy would run that ship in that storm if they wouldn't be sure about the planes and stuff.

You're talking about the same people who buy million dollar toilet seats.

well secured is one thing, but those craft are being subjected to potential damage. put another way, i would not want to be put on the catapult with that aircraft.

not being a carrier sailor, i would still say that carriers generally don't carry more aircraft than they can stow, which is why they have mission specific aircraft configurations.

I guess it could be a salt spray corrosion test or water ingress test!!!!

anyway I would not like to be the next flight crew.

Those are big honking waves but they don't look like 90' to me.

I know it a little late but this is a description posted with the video on a Military Strategy web page.:

This carrier is 90,000 ton. Imagine what this is like on a 2,200 ton destroyer? The aircraft seen in the attached video is a helo from a deployed helicopter squadron (HS-14) based at the U.S. Naval Air Facility in Atsugi , Japan . The carrier is the USS Kitty Hawk, based in Yokosuka , Japan . The "Hawk" was underway for CQ (Airwing Carrier Qualifications) in the Sea of Japan during the week of March 22, 2008.

The chopper seen on the ship's bow, tied down at helo Spot 2, is a Sikorsky SH-60F from HS-14. The pilot had just landed on deck, and his helo was tied down on Spot 2 because the seas were too rough to move it to a safer place. Fortunately, it only suffered some minor damage (blade crutch support socket) and a lot of salt water intrusion from the sea...

While viewing the video and estimating the size of the waves, keep in mind that the carrier's flight deck is approximately 60' above the ship's normal water line.

Aberdeen

The tail-end of hurricane Nadine is causing a mess of Scotland. A white foam is breaking on the beaches.

Strange stuff.
