The colors are brilliant. The flight deck really puts in perspective the size of the ship and the size of the Golden Gate Bridge.

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.

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.

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 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.

The shadow on the deck is almost to the Air Boss. They are ready to launch! Nice shot, Sagar!

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!

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