The Kitty Hawk by Doug Keller
Click Here's a great picture of the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63 at sea. When this west pac kitty hawk cruise started in October of 1977 the ship had been freshly rebuilt. Every part was clean and like new. The kitty hawk was one of the most advanced aircraft carriers in the navy. The kitty hawk saw the first pacific deployment of the f14 tomcats with vf-114 the fighting aardvarks and vf-213 the black lions. The USS Kitty Hawk was also the first ship to do an operational test of the harpoon anti ship cruise missile which happened on this cruise. Believe me, if you want adventure, you need to join the navy and sail on great aircraft carriers like the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63. C. Jeff Dyrek, webmaster
