Today we visited the USS WASP & the HMS Lancaster. The WASP is an aircraft carrier. We saw many type of armored vehicles that are carried aboard the ship. C loved climbing into the tanks! He especially loved sitting in the helicopter.
We also toured the HMS Lancaster, a frigate operated by the Royal Navy. They have a Wildcat helicopter aboard. I think C enjoyed hearing about pursuing pirates and tracking what they referred to as “bad ships.” It sounds like they have helped the Coast Guard in dealing with drug traffickers in the Carribean. http://m.navaltoday.com/#newsitem-79128
The highlight of the trip for C was sitting in the Captain’s chair on the HMS Lancaster. Thank you to the Royal Navy officers for making his day!
