RESEARCHERS ANNOUNCE WRECKAGE FROM USS INDIANAPOLIS LOCATED A team of civilian researchers led by entrepreneur and philanthropist Paul G. Allen announced August 18 that they have found the wreck of the World War II cruiser USS Indianapolis (CA 35), which was lost July 30, 1945. This is a significant discovery considering the depth of the water in which the ship was lost – more than 18,000 feet. Around 800 of the ship's 1,196 Sailors and Marines survived the sinking, but after four to five days in the water – suffering exposure, dehydration, drowning, and shark attacks – only 316 survived. The wreck was located by the expedition crew of Research Vessel (R/V) Petrel, which is owned by Allen, 5,500 meters below the surface, resting on the floor of the North Pacific Ocean. Indianapolis was lost in the final days of World War II when it was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine in the early morning hours of July 30, 1945. The Indianapolis sank in 12 minutes, making it impossible to send a distress signal or deploy much of its life-saving equipment. Prior to the attack, the Indianapolis had just completed a secret mission delivering components of the atomic bomb used in Hiroshima that would ultimately help end the war in the Pacific. ℹ️: Click the link in our bio for more information. #GoNavy #History #HistoryBuff #HistoryGeek #HistoryNerd #InstaNavy #LifeAboveTheWater #LifeAtSea #LifeOnTheWater #MilHistory #Military #NavyLife @DeptOfDefense @USNHistory

Is there a more beautiful sight? The sun sets as #USSGeorgeHWBush transits the Atlantic Ocean during exercise #SaxonWarrior 2017. The U.S. and United Kingdom co-hosted carrier strike group exercise demonstrates interoperability and capability to respond to crises and deter potential threats. #AircraftCarrier #CVN77 #GoNavy #InstaNavy #LifeAboveTheWater #LifeAtSea #LifeOnTheWater #Military #NavyLife #NoFilter @DeptOfDefense @ministryofdefence

Over the next few weeks, these meticulously selected Sailors will go through the proccess of learning why the chief’s anchors are symbol of expertise, trust, partnership and above all…leadership. Good luck to our next generation of authentic, competent and courageous #USNavy leaders! Enjoy your season! Seen here, Ship's Serviceman 1st Class Terrell Jackson reacts to Command Master Chief Jimmy Haley telling him he was selected as a chief aboard the aircraft carrier #USSNimitz #CVN68. #NavyChief #NavyPride #InstaNavy#LifeAboveTheWater #LifeOnTheWater#LifeUnderTheSea #Military #NavyLife#Sailors @DeptOfDefense

Remember on an aircraft carrier, there are more #USNavy Sailors than just those topside on the flight deck – like Hull Maintenance Technician Fireman Nicholas Dangelo seen here using a chop saw, August 2. ⚓️: He’s part of #USSGeraldRFord’s combined mechanical shop. The next-generation aircraft carrier is underway in the Atlantic Ocean for testing and evaluation. #aircraftcarrier #construction #craftmanship #CVN78 #lifeabovethewater #lifeatsea #lifeonthewater #military #milstagram #navylife #sailors #teamwork #tools #toolsofthetrade #usnavy @deptofdefense

It takes a team! Cpl. William Miller (left) and Aviation Ordnanceman Airman Andrew Mcgaha disarm a CATM-9X missile on an aircraft after an arrested landing aboard #USSNimitz, July 31. ℹ️: The Nimitz Carrier Strike Group is carrying out strike sorties from the Arabian Gulf in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. The strike group's deployment to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations supports Operation Inherent Resolve and signals the continued commitment to defeat and destroy ISIS. In addition to anti-ISIS missions, the ship and strike group are conducting maritime security operations to reassure allies and partners, preserve freedom of navigation and maintain the free flow of commerce. #AircraftCarrier #AvGeeks #Aviation #CVN68 #IGAviation #InstagramAviation #LifeAboveTheWater #LifeAtSea #LifeOnTheWater #Military #MilitaryAircraft #NavyLife #Sailors #USNavy #Weapons @DeptOfDefense

Historic milestone! Less than one week after President Donald Trump commissioned our newest aircraft carrier, #USSGeraldRFord launched and recovered its first fixed-wing aircraft on Friday. The Super Hornet caught the number two arresting wire of #CVN78’s advanced arresting gear system and was launched from catapult one using the electromagnetic launch system. The software-controlled advanced arresting gear is a modular, integrated system that consists of energy absorbers, power conditioning equipment and digital controls, with architecture that provides built-in test and diagnostics, resulting in lower maintenance and manpower requirements. The system is designed to provide higher reliability and safety margins, as well as to allow for the arrestment of a greater range of aircraft and reduce the fatigue impact load to the aircraft. The electromagnetic launch system’s remains the same as the traditional steam catapult; however, it employs entirely different technologies. It delivers necessary higher-launch energy capacity, improvements in system maintenance, increased reliability and efficiency, and more accurate end-speed control and smooth acceleration. EMALS is designed to expand the operational capability of the Navy's future carriers to include all current and future planned carrier aircraft - from lightweight unmanned aircraft to heavy strike fighters. #AvGeeks #Aviation #IGAviation #InstagramAviation #LifeAboveTheWater #LifeAtSea #LifeOnTheWater #Military #MilitaryAircraft #NavyLife #Sailors #USNavy @DeptOfDefense @realdonaldtrump

Today, we’re commissioning the #USNavy’s newest guided-missile destroyer, the future #USSRafaelPeralta. ℹ️: Click the link in our bio to watch the 1 p.m. EDT / 10 a.m. PDT ceremony on July 29 at Naval Air Station North Island in San Diego. 🇺🇸: #DDG115 honors @Marines Sgt. Rafael Peralta, who was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross for actions during combat operations in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Peralta is credited with saving the lives of fellow Marines during the second battle of Fallujah in 2004. ⚓️: The 64th Arleigh Burke-class destroyer will be able to conduct a variety of operations, from peacetime presence and crisis management to sea control and power projection. It will be capable of engaging in air, surface and subsurface battles simultaneously and will contain a myriad of offensive and defensive weapons designed to support maritime warfare, including Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) capabilities. #GoNavy #InstaNavy #LifeAtSea #LifeOnTheWater #MarineCorps #Marines #Military #NavyLife #Sailors #SanDiego #SemperFidelis #USMC @deptofdefense
