Report Nigel R. Sadler

The nuclear powered carrier arrived off Stokes bay on 6/6 for a six-day goodwill visit to Portsmouth and to take part in celebrations connected with the 100th anniversary of General Eisenhower's birth. VFA-135 F-18A 162411/306 on the hanger deck was being painted and its serial was absent from both sides of the fuselage. The squadron lost a Hornet coded '306' in an accident earlier in the cruise (31/03/90 see BAR/AP355) this aircraft had recently been delivered as a replacement.
