Not my ship but USS Tarawa (LHA 1) while mooring to the same pier knocked down a collimation tower
Naval Station San Diego, 1978. Civilian pilot was apparently at fault, since Tarawa
's CO kept his job. The tower fell onto Tarawa
's flight deck. IIRC no aircraft were embarked, or at least none were damaged.
while on a ship or sub?? I mean have any of you experience your ship/sub hitting something large ( hopefully not enough to sink ya ), but enough to file a report, or seen the damage when inport, OR you had to dry-dock??
Just saw a report of USS CONNECTICUT SSN-type (SEAWOLF-class [??]) hitting an underwater object. I still remember when I was a young 'sea-squirt' hearing about a KNOX-class FF hitting or getting Hit by a "sea creature" (damaged the sonar dome).
I mention ships and subs, because if an A/C hit somethin' its curtains!!
Thanks for your time.
