The transition from former enemy to ally is evidenced by these GI-clad Japanese army volunteers during maneuvers at the Fuji Army School outside of Tokyo on May 15, 1957. Armed with American-made weapons and supported by a U.S.-supplied tank, the soldiers were part of the 160,000-man ground, sea and air self-defense forces undergoing intensive training for the defense of the Japanese homeland.

The nose art on this particular aircraft signifies that it belongs to the squadron commander and represents an example of the Air Force’s attempt to reinstate this distinctive tradition.(1987)

A Final Mission….for a Supercarrier….

PHILADELPHIA, PA, February 4, 2014 — Under cover of early morning wintry darkness, the former super aircraft carrier USS Forrestal (CV 59) departed on one final mission….a 17-day voyage, under tow, to the scrapyard in Brownsville, TX.

She served the people of the United States for nearly 40 years (1955-1993)….in peace and in war….through tragedy and triumph. She was America’s first super aircraft carrierconstructed with an angled flight deck, steam catapult, and an optical landing system.

She was the future of America’s aircraft carrier fleet. USS Forrestal was decommissioned in 1993….and, despite endless efforts, she was never able to find a final home as a museum or waterfront attraction. In the end, she was sold for scrap….for one penny.

Now….on a final several-thousand mile voyage….stripped of all electronics, most machinery, and, of course, crew….the former masterpiece of engineering, and American ingenuity and resolve….is headed for complete dismantling….vanishing into the pages of American Naval history.

Farewell, honored shipmate! You served your Nation well!
