N News: Big D shows off her 'massive potential' to the Big E

Good article but needs minor amendment:

...and a few(ish) yards away is (arguably) the world’s most famous aircraft, USS Enterprise (1,123ft long, 93,000+ tons)...

I know exactly what you mean. :)

(But the original version was far more spectacular!)

Just an aside on the type 45s have they all , got an allocated ships helicopter, and a ships flight crew???? embarked or dissembarked??? or is it another..... sometime, maybe, :roll: in the future story.

"Daring’s anti-air missile system can defend the task group with Sea Viper missiles for at least 60 miles in all directions."

That'll be the one that only Dauntless has at the moment, then...?

Read the article again, it say "shows off her massive potential" not her ability.

I had the potential to be a porn star, unfortunately not the ability :oops:

I stand corrected, bit of a blonde moment.

Looking forward to your article, WreckerL !

Scouse, I believe that no Lynx flights are now "dedicated" to a Ship, they just hop from one to the other as required by HQ (perhaps a SSF member could confirm this?).

Merlin flights are dedicated to T23s.

I think the official phrase is "fitted for but not with" :(

She has got a couple of stern looking chiefs who can growl at the enemy though...

One should never underestimate the impotence of proof-reading everything that is published... :wink:

Indeed. Four pairs of eyes read NN before it goes to press and still typos appear... or there are missing words...

It's only when we produce the audio edition for the blind that we realise just how clunky some of the sentences are (especially mine... a love of subordinate clauses is not necessarily a good thing :lol: )

I have a gut feeling that you speak German, Asst Ed, and I think that this influences your affinity with the subordinate clause in English ..........

By the way, one of the great joys for me personally is the titling of Navy News' articles - I'm still amazed by "Gaudi, Partners .......", about a ship's visit to Barcelona!
