Towards the end of February 2006 I had the opportunity to visit the US aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) on what was to be it's last operational media day before returning to it's homeport of Norfolk, Va.
The highlight of the trip of course was to see the Tomcat flying in it's last year of operations. (The US Navy is retiring it's last F-14's in September 2006)
I would like to thank everyone involved in arranging this visit, especially the various US Navy Public Affairs Officers, without who's help you wouldn't been seeing these pictures.
