Re: Trump/China has approached me for my photos on CVN 78...
The official dimensions are classified.
I wanted to get plans for a cruiser my father was CO of which was laid down in '65. I was at NAVSEA, and figured I'd hop the Metro to NAVSHIPS and ask and was told that I couldn't have them. Asked when they'd be released and was told outside an act of Congress 2030-2040ish.
Best you can do are 3rd party plans.
been keeping this silent for awhile . I sent every one I had 1200 images . Legal externals and HB. WHERE can I legally get dimensions? Length overall from bulbous nose aft....Length overall at water line....Length overall at FD level ? Is the Hull beam midships same as NIMITZ? Both appear to fit in the same dry dock..so hence my guess at width. Often wondered how they got the NIMITZ dimensions from the get go. Newport News questions I get crickets .......sources ?
