    it might be riding high with the air wing still at Oceana and the lower decks clear to help.to bad they couldn't have cleared an interstate or major road around N.O. and slipsteamed some cargo(water,mres)in with C-130s.those silver parachuted cylinders with all those staples within like in Empire of the Sun...that Speilberg movie did. http://www.ncts.navy.mil/homepages/cvn75/

    It's pronounced Nawfuc. I spent 4 years in the hampton roads. Norfork is located in Arkansas

    Way to go, Truman snipes!
    • Electricity makes refrigeration happen.
    • Refrigeration makes the HVAC psychrometric process happen.
    • HVAC pyschrometrics is what makes indoor human comfort happen...IF the ducts AND the building envelope cooperate.


    A building is NOT beautiful unless it is also comfortable.

    They are known as the "Mercy" and the "Comfort"
    Both are converted supertankers.
