    HMCS ALGONQUIN. Never sailed aboard her,

    The Canadian destroyer HMCS Algonquin (DDG 283) is shown underway in close formation with the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) and the guided missile frigate USS Ford (FFG 54). Algonquin is participating in an eight-ship photo exercise just prior to participation in Rim of the Pacific Exercise (RIMPAC) 2004. RIMPAC is the largest international maritime exercise in the waters around the Hawaiian Islands and includes seven participating nations; Australia, Canada, Chile, Japan, South Korea, Britain and the United States. RIMPAC is intended to enhance the tactical proficiency of participating units in a wide array of combined operations at sea, while enhancing stability in the Pacific Rim region.

    And the STENNIS, I have sailed aboard, ok. For about 8hrs, but thats more than most can "Brag". AND got to experience a carrier launch. THAT was fun!!

    Ford 289's were pretty good.


    Given a choice between any ship labled "SS" or "DD", I'll take the DD any day. I DONT DO submarines! Too claustaphobic for that one.

    {Paso, sorry you don't feel well. *hands over chicken soup*}

    291 is the commonly known name for an internationally famous art gallery that was located at 291 Fifth Avenue in New York City from 1905 to 1917. Originally known as the "Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession", the gallery was created and managed by photographer Alfred Stieglitz.

    The exhibitions there helped bring art photography to the same stature in America as painting and sculpture.

    The Old Capt. blew it on missing 270. Everybody else followed suite without paying attention.

    Ban him for 293 seconds. That should teach him a lesson to pay attention.
