Fotografía Serie Agencia. Portaaviones Roosevelt Vintage photo USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CV 42) - formerly CORAL SEA - - formerly CVB 42, CVA 42 -




Las fotografías de agencia siguen siendo un buen lugar para encontrar fotos bonitas y, muchas veces de calidad.
Curiosamente se encuentran con relativa facilidad en el mercado eso sí a precios muy dispares según sea el vendedor.
Como es obvio no son fotos únicas pero a mí, personalmente, me agrada encontrarlas en los mercadillos y desembalajes.
No figura dato alguno de la agencia que realizó la foto.
En este caso la foto representa un vista, picado desde un avión, de uno de los grandes portaaviones americanos

USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CV 42)

- formerly CORAL SEA -
- formerly CVB 42, CVA 42 -

.....USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT was the second MIDWAY - class aircraft carrier and the first ship in the Navy named after President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Initially, the carrier was launched as CORAL SEA but was renamed FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT on May 8, 1945, following the death of the US President. During her active service, the FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT achieved several historical milestones: In 1945 she was the platform for the first fleet use of helicopters; in 1949 she became the first US aircraft carrier to have the fresnel lens landing system and she was the first carrier in the Navy to win three Admiral J. H. Flatley awards for aviation safety. ..

As the Cold War became increasingly tense in the late 1940s and early 1950s, the carrier regularly crossed the Atlantic for operations with the Sixth Fleet off Southern Europe, carrying both conventionally and nuclear-armed aircraft to deter the Soviet Union and its client states. She was reclassified as an attack aircraft carrier in October 1952, changing her hull number from CVB-42 to CVA-42.
