Nice picture!!! And taken from the "vulture's row"!!! What a privileged spot to take carrier ops pictures!!! BTW, nice combination of three men creations: Super Hornets, USS Nimitz and the Golden Gate!!!

I would really like to be in one of the sailbopats around the carrier or the bridge if not onboard the carrier.
Nice photo!

A visitor from - posted Sat March 5, 2011:
Being launched from a carrier is always awesome I´m sure, however when you get launched under the Golden Gate Bridge it has to be even cooler. Imagine the even more increased sensation of speed!

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 22, 2011:
The shadow on the deck is almost to the Air Boss. They are ready to launch! Nice shot, Sagar!

A five stars, er, five diamonds rating for this pic. Whoever is on the bridge that day is one lucky SOB! Right ship, right place, right time and great weather to boot.

A visitor from Finland posted Wed November 24, 2010:
Wow pretty impressive

A visitor from - posted Sat October 16, 2010:
Imagine the view looking down from the bridge! 4.5 acres of American sovereignty anywhere you wanna put it. Go Navy!

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 8, 2010:
Cool Shot... Notice the sailors. Concentration is the Key...Focused on their jobs as always!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun September 19, 2010:
Wooww !!!!!!!!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu September 9, 2010:
Great shot. Would love to see photo's of them launching with the land in the background.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu September 9, 2010:
Wow this really is a great capture,looks like an advertising for servicemen.

A visitor from United States posted Thu September 9, 2010:
Breath taking photo. Completely blown away! Pun fully intended. =D 5*!

A visitor from - posted Wed September 8, 2010:
This is an incredible shot! I was standing up on the hills looking down at the Golden Gate just a few weeks ago which makes the shot even more special! Great job at getting this one!

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Only in America, talk about projecting power.

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Nice capture! There's a similar youtube video (qicX04R05sE) of S-3s and F18s launching off of Constellation (CV-64)as she heads out to sea.

A visitor from - posted Wed September 8, 2010:
This is an amazing shot. Would love to see the launch!

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Beautiful shot!
I was engaged this summer on the rock in the background just to the left of the bridge. Makes this shot even more special.

A visitor from - posted Wed September 8, 2010:
The colors are brilliant. The flight deck really puts in perspective the size of the ship and the size of the Golden Gate Bridge.

A visitor from India posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Holy S***.. This really is showing off! :P

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Unbelievable capture. In my top five instantly!!!!

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed September 8, 2010:
***** but are there monoplace SH's ? I thought they're are ever biplace in tandem

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Wow something you don't see everyday. Interesting to see aircraft on the cat and ready to while steaming into port.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Greatest place to showoff!

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Hornets about to launch there? showoff...

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 8, 2010:
Wow - what a capture. Excellent work, Sagar.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed September 8, 2010:
This shot is superb.The place is magical,the ship is a legend,and the action is thrilling.
BTW,there's steam coming from one of the cat rails.Did they launch aircrafts under the bridge.If so,eat that Hollywood!

A visitor from Australia posted Wed September 8, 2010:
