A movie I made to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the sinking of the USS America (CV-66).

this is a nice tribute to one of the most impressive aircraft carrier ships of USA...
you've done a great work at delivering a quality movie (again), which has both beautiful visuals, nice features and an educational purpose in it, thus creating a great film that doesnt just entertain people, it teaches them stuff too.

first of all, your drawings of the aircraft carrier were amazing, both on its (huge) exterior view, showing us its immense size, and on its interior, which was super-detailed and realistic, which adds even more to the movie's immersion about this glorious ship.

as for the ship's history, its impressive that, even after 30+ years of active service, and after it was destined for some explosion tests, that it stayed strong for 4 weeks and that it never sunk.
this was a truly resilient, strong and formidable ship.
what a great ship!

its nice that they've put her to rest in the cape hatteras position, so that it can serve as a man-made coral-reef for the aquatic life of the area.
(and the fact that the USS america is currently the largest warship to ever be sunk in the world, is truly impressive, imho.)

all in all, you've done a beautiful and informative movie, with gorgeous visuals, great realism, with good narration/voice-acting, and with some solid info to add about this veteran ship's final moments.

keep up the good work!!

Aircraft carriers are just behemoths of war.

The most dangerous yet awe inspiring place to be is on the flight deck, and you can fell the thundering rumble throughout the ship.

As visually enjoyable as it was educational. Excellent, excellent work as always Rube.
