USS Hornet

Here's the historic USS Hornet seen from shore in Alameda, California during a great paint-out with the East Bay Plein Air group.  The Hornet is a naval aircraft carrier that was active in the Pacific during WWII and went on to recover Apollo astronauts returning from the moon.  It was fun painting this magnificent ship, with all of its complex equipment and vintage jets perched on the flight deck.
