I was crazy enough then, to do it!

The very USS Independence air craft carrier that I was on!

It was a phone call that I was waiting for about two years, a request to go on board a United States aircraft carrier USS Independence.
So we took off from Subang air force base and a Blackhound carrier or so called a flying coffin, a windowless aircraft where we have to sit facing the wrong way.
So we flew over the Andaman Sea where the carrier was moving towards somewhere and we made a landing, phew!!
So after an unsuccessful first harrowing attempt to land on the aircraft carrier we made it the second times. It was quite an experience, but I will never, as a civilian, do it again!
