USS George Bush 28-29-39th July

As the title says, the USS George Bush aircraft carrier will be visiting The Solent, dropping anchor off Lee-on-the-Solent during the dates 28th, 29th and 30th July 8-)

Unfortunately I'll be on holiday during this time :( but thought I'd give you guys and girls the heads up ;-)

The USS George H W Bush (CVN-77) comes to the Solent as part of her European and Middle East deployment. USS George H W Bush is the tenth and final Nimitz-class supercarrier of the United States Navy. She is named for the 41st President of the United States and former Director of Central Intelligence. Commissioned in January 2009, her home port is NS Norfolk, Virginia. Her length is 333 metres and carries 90 fixed wing aircraft and helicopters.

There will be a patrolled exclusion zone of approx 200 metres but I reckon it'll be well worth a visit :idea:

Maybe someone would like to take up the reins and organise something :drive
:cheers
I walked through the door marked 'EXIT' and life is now good!

Can't make it I'll be in Wales with the campervan gutted though as would be great to see. Don't get too close as those boys and girls have itchy trigger fingers!
