So ex-Forrestal is departing Philadelphia today (story below), and locally, the public has been advised of the best times and paces to get a last look at her during the 18-hour tow down the Delaware River.
But for the weather and my leg, I'd have loved to do a fly-over and shoot some photos of that naval legend from above as she departs. Still, it might be just as well, for the idea of one final touch-and-go on her angled flight deck would be tempting indeed.
I gotta think that there's probably a law against it, but since she's already been sold and is no longer Navy property, what's the worst that they could get me for?
Yeah, sometimes bad weather and a bum leg are a blessing in disguise.
