USS Harry S Truman - Solent May 2003

The 100,000-ton aircraft carrier USS Harry S Truman sailed up the eastern coast of the Isle of Wight and into Stokes Bay on the way back from war in the Gulf. She is there Sunday 11th May and well worth a look.

We attracted some attention even though we where a few hundred metres away!! The fast boats and diving suits made them twitchy, to quote the copper!
