Super Cool air-to-air images of the world’s sole flying examples of Sea Vixen and Seafire: The Aviationist.

Say what you will about The Aviationist but David Cenciotti does come up with some real gems from time to time.  These are two of the most beautiful fighters ever built………………………just my humble(or not so humble) opinion.

Sea Vixen, Beautiful Jet.
The Spitfire for the RN Air Arm
The RN Seafire

Both planes represent important part of Fleet Air Arm (FAA), the branch of the British Royal Navy responsible for the operation of naval aircraft: the Supermarine Seafire was a naval version of the Supermarine Spitfire adapted for operation from aircraft carriers that flew from 1942 to 1950s; the de Havilland DH.110 Sea Vixen was a twin boom, twin-engined two-seat carrier-based fleet defence fighter that served from 1959 into the 1970s.

A History Lesson, Plane Pr0n and Ship Pr0n all in one.

I came across this on YouTube. HMS Ark Royal R09 in 1975 conducting flight operations in the Mediterranean Sea. I am not sure what time of year it was but in the late Autumn of 1975, when I was aboard USS Independence CV62, we conducted a cross deck with Ark Royal. In 1976, we did it again.

This ship is gone now………………as are the Phantoms of 892 Squadron, the Buccaneers of 809 Squadron, the Gannetts and the Sea Kings and the Turbine H-34……………………………..

The RN Phantoms were amazing with those Rolls Royce Speys and the unique afterburners and the very long nose strut extend for the short cat stroke on The Ark.
