Sea Fighter’s New Look
Check out the FSF-1 Sea Fighter’s new makeover, as seen recently on the Columbia River in Oregon. Very impressive. Ace commenter D.E. Reddick provides an apt description:
Her bow is now higher with what appears to be greater forward clearance. She also has her third configuration of the tower structure above her bridge (an apparently different radar installation is visible). And most interestingly, her flight deck is now concealed behind a seemingly solid stealth shield, rather than the safety screen previously utilized. Aft along that solid stretch of siding there appear to be two structures both port and starboard. I suppose those might be weapons systems structures. Or – something else, altogether – maybe something to do with flight operations?
For comparison, note the photo below from several years ago, to today. Not quite so attractive but she seems eminently functional, and far from a Luxury Combat Ship!
