24-Hours On a Navy Supercarrier Video Will Provoke Multiple Aeroplane-Lover Nerdgasms

This video has it all: timelapses, dramatic photography and tons of aircraft porn. It's a typical day on the USS Carl Vinson, the third of the US Navy's Nimitz-class nuclear supercarriers. It's also the place where they took Osama Bin Laden's body before dumping him at sea.

The USS Carl Vinson, a behemoth that displaces 101,300 long tonmes of water and is 1,092 feet long, carries around 90 fixed wing and helicopters at any given time, including F/A-18E/F Super Hornets, EA-6B Prowler electronic warfare aircraft and Sikorsky SH-60 Seahawk submarine hunting helicopters, among others.

It's an spectacular video. Like Top Gun on steroids without Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer playing touch-pee-pee in their white briefs.
