Stevez, you were wondering about the ship that was in a photo posted on page 4066. I had posted that it is a semisubmersible ship, used for transporting very large objects across the oceans.
Here is a link to that ship. The destroyer being carried is the USS Cole.

And the less glamorous (than the King Air or Commander) Embraer 120

Because Jeff Welker loves King Airs...

Feeling Superior? Then why not fly the "Supreme Commander?"

Thank you Jay, I surely do love those King Airs. Especially when they look as good as they do in your photographs. I wonder if Governor Brewer was in that Commander? Not a bad way to scoot around the state and visit with the "folks"

Did you see where Cessna decided not to sell the final 80 inventory Skycatchers? A sad end to an ugly airplane (sorry, Glenn).

are you sorry for saying its ugly or sorry about the pathetic ending?

I did see it. I sold one of them, but still have the other two in service at the local flight school - they come close to breaking even for now so i'll keep them until they fully depreciate. its a shame really - its a sweet airplane that died due to the low LSA max weight.

Thanks for the link, Colin. I was really wondering about the load, not the carrier, but I'm happy to know more about both about both.

I'm looking at Jay's King Air (a beautiful image) and wondering about the sunken oval patches near the trailing edge of the vertical stab. Are they just artifacts of the manufacturing process, or do they have some function? Anyone know?

Sorry Steve, I re-read what you posted and see where I was wrong. I think I just latched onto the "floating dry
dock" part. Technically, the ship is not a floating dry dock, but I suppose it could be used as such. The only problem I see there, aside from being open on the sides and therefore, subject to any wave action that might sweep across the deck, is the demand for this ship and its sister, the Black Marlin. These ships are in constant demand to haul oversize loads across the oceans to anywhere in the world. In regards to the load that the Blue Marlin is carrying, it almost looks like a hull section for another ship, but without seeing more of the load, that is too hard to ascertain.

Steve,

I think these are small access panels that can be removed for maintenance purposes.
You sometimes see similar shaped ovals under the wings of aircraft.

Not only do they haul cargo and people for 1000miles, they are the plane of choice for our Royal Flying Doctor Service which look after those who live in the seriously outback of out back Australia where paved strips are but a dream that will never eventuate

magnificent aircraft

Makes sense, Mark; but that's an awful lot of inspection holes for one relatively straightforward part of the airframe.

My exact thoughts Jeremy. Terrific photograph of the Tiger, a favorite of my photo sorties to Yuma.
