Navy ship taking "evasive action"

by indecorum • 4,270,357 views

Navy ship at high speed making a hard left turn. This was filmed around August 11, 2007, just off the coast of Norfolk, from the flight deck of the Eisenhower.

what you don't see is all the sailors spewing off the edge as it turns

Used to be only aircraft carriers, battleships ... and car dealerships had flags that big. Now they appear to be common fleetwide.

USS Gonzalez DDG 66. Named for Alfredo Cantu Gonzalez, a Medal of Honor recipient in the Vietnam War. Making a high speed turn. A voice says "That does look pretty impressive." Got that right mister. A destroyer with very fine lines and look at the ensign (flag) fly.

Let me guess, the USS Gonzalez (DDG-66).
Report spam or abuse
Meh, not as impressive as it looks. The length of the vessel makes it look like the (missile destroyer? That's the USS Gonzales, from the NATO pirate hunting mission a few years back, isn't it?) ship displaces a higher weight than it does. Looks to be about 8000 tonnes to me. Maneuvering it like a Nansen-class (a 5000-ton destroyer/frigate hybrid known for pulling of the maneuver shown here) should not be too difficult with a well-drilled crew, a solid rudder and some independently operating propellers.

USS Oilburner burning fuel at 10 gallons per minute
Report spam or abuse
+topgearownz I stood the watch that took soundings of the fuel oil tanks and worked on the controls that supplied oil to the boilers on an air craft carrier back in the late 70s. One night I decided to calculate the fuel economy of the JFK CV67 doing best speed which was 21 knots for the JFK. Best speed is not the fastest speed it will go, but the most efficient. So that night while the ship was going straight and doing best speed, I carefully measured how much oil we had used and how far we had traveled to get miles per gallon. So I can say I know that ship gets 86 gallons per mile average at steady best speed. Now that is gallons per mile not miles per gallon and is statutory miles, not knots. That comes out to 61 feet per gallon.
Report spam or abuse
+Walter Taljaard Hell of a lot more than that! A gas turbine can burn hundreds of gallons per minute, and most ships have at least two.

The voice in the background must be a guest, he called the carrier a "boat"
Report spam or abuse
+Jim F They are all guests I believe, and boats and ships are both vessels. A ship is not a boat, even if that's what some people call it. In fact, mot of the vessels people call "ships" aren't ships; a "ship" is a 3-masted, square rigged sailing vessel.
Report spam or abuse
All vessels? Yes. Three masted ship compered to brigs and sloops yes. But USS and HMS and many other navies  second S is for ship. Same with SS steamship. Yes M/V is motor vessel. Boats go on ships. A few exceptions. This destroyer is a ship. Some may out of affection call their ship a boat.

+john g You must have missed the part where he ordered hard rudder to port at flank speed. It's evasive action whether there is a real threat or not. They demonstrate what the vessel can do if need be, just like a jet fighter pulling combat moves at an air show.

"Evasive Action" story.  I was on the battleship USS New Jersey BB62. Because we carried 2 1/2 million gallons of fuel, we also acted as a re-fueling ship. In Vietnam we re-fueled many ships. This is done by the ships running parallel to each other at the same speed and sending a large hose over to the other ship. We had done this dozens of times and never had an accident. But, we did have to take evasive action one time when a Russian Trawler (they look like a fishing boat, but their task is to gather information about our ship. They would even try to pick up our trash) crossed in front of your ships while re-fueling . They were pretty close and slowed down considerably. So, we had to do an emergence break away. Easier said than done. But we acted quickly and no one got hurt. This close call happened in 1969. The video you see here is some kind of practice....testing it's max. ability to do a sharp turn. Still, pretty impressive. Don't ever forget to say, "Thanks for your Service" to every US Military person you meet.  It really means a lot to us.

Being in the Navy, that's a Destroyer. On the Burkes, such as this one, the SPY radar arrays point out at 45 degree angles to the bow. On the Ticonderoga cruisers, they point at 90 degrees to the bow and the superstructure and weaponry is totally different (extra 5 inch gun, CIWS, etc.).

+Lee Goins It looks like typical sea trials to me, where the captain puts the ship through it's paces, with hard turns port and starboard, speed runs, and stops from max speed. Maybe the guy who uploaded this video should have named it something different. In any case, thanks for your service!
