Re: JFC. What was the thought process behind this?
at rough guess i would say more profit!
Are you telling me we had a perfectly good toilet system and some weenie with an MBA convinced us to build Aircraft style shitters? Did they not notice the incredibly big difference between an 8 hour flight with 400 people aboard and a 6 month deployment with 4000 people?
Assume 2 flights a day and everyone shits once. 1 deployment and in one year the CVN would have 730,000 flushes vs 292,000 airplane flushes in a year. And I'm pretty sure the pipes are shorter on the airplane!
