    well to my highly trained movie eye it looks like a shallow subserface detonation, like a deapth charge in the movies before the big ball of water/steam/vapor, blow out of the water.

    and judging by the size of it , and assuming its not shopped. must be attack, no planes on deck though:thinking::thinking:

    That looks like a HUGE explosion compared to what appears to be an aircraft carrier. :eek:

    maybe i'm just crazy, but if you look at the pic, and dont focus directly on it, i can see what appears to be a chop line extending from the left edge of the carrier's reflection. anybody else see that?

    IIRC, the flight deck of a CVN is about 75ft off the water. The island and masts adds another 75ft or so. That water column is taller than the ship, which would take some serious boom-boom. They haven't blown up the America yet, and the Navy would never let an explosion that big happen near an active CVN, sooo......

    CHOP!

    yeah i thought it was still cool though.

    at first i though the ship was the chop, because of the shadow uner it looked like it was fake, but it also looks like the wake behind the ship is right..


    still a cool shot/shop

    I saw a show on the sea trials of the Regan I think and they did stuff like that. It was controlled but they did stuff like that to test the integrity of the ship, It was a cool show :cool1:

    Yep that is part of the sea trials.

    I was stationed on the carrier George Washington. There were some guys still around that commissioned the ship, and heard about that testing. I've seen a similar pic of the GW.
