Re: Operation Sandy images #2...question...
The rectangular "patches" are non-skid material. The same or similar material was used on many USN ships during WWII. The material seen in the second image, was standard on the steel decks of the MIDWAY class carriers in the 1950's.
Did the MIDWAY have a wooden deck still?? I understand that it had an armored deck but is that wood on top????
I'm only familiar with modern AC carriers.
Thanks for your time and images.
Are still images "Proof"?
Note that the USN was VERY concerned about damage to the ship and kept other ships FAR away during the launch.
of USS MIDWAY.......launching a V-2 rocket!!
Now, I have heard of this before and as I was building My MIDWAY, found out the history of CV-41 launching such a rocket, but I needed "proof"
