Essex Class Aircraft Carrier Screw

At the Nimitz Museum this 15 foot tall, 27,000 pound, solid bronze screw (propellor) makes quite a display. Jerry served on the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier in the late 50’s, the Hornet had 4 of these pushing it through the water.
Captivating.

I should have had Jerry stand behind it to give scale to it’s size. The deck of the carrier was 80’ above the ocean’s surface, it was a huge ship, I can believe it took four of these to push it along. Thank you all so much for your comments!
