#navycarriercentennial we take a look at their evolution, here is CVN-71 and CV-67, USS Kennedy (in the background) was the last conventional powered carrier for the US Navy. Note the placement of the SPS-48 and SPS-49 radars were reversed on the Nimitz Class carriers. They had the same number of elevators as well as placement, additionally on the stern starboard quarter the bump out that supported more flight deck space. #usnavy #navalaviation #raytheon #sps48 #sps49 #CV67 #CVN71 #aviationsafari #aviationpreservation #boneyardsafari #f18 #sh60
