Again, Thank you Magogman for the interesting info. Those sorts of things make this whole shipspotting sport more fun. I love knowing more about the background and history etc on these vessels. Have a great day!

Neat photo! I emailed it to a good friend who retired from the Navy 20 years ago -- he was a catapult officer and served on several carriers as both an enlisted man and officer. Here is what he said about the photo:
"You are looking down the track of Catapult #2 with Catapult #1 to the left. The waist catapults #3 and #4 can be identified by the raised jet blast deflectors further aft on the angled deck. The two raised white hatches back there contain catapult pressure gauges, and pressure setting controls.

The jet blast deflectors are hollow aluminum panels that have hundreds of gallons of sea water flowing through them to keep them from melting.

The catapults are C-13 Mod-2 steam catapults. Invented by the British and improved over the years by US Navy Naval Air Engineering Center and the Naval Air Test Facility at Lakehurst, NJ where I had my last tour as the Senior Test Site Officer."

I thought this was such an interesting photo that the above description might add to it.
