    That looks like a late 40's, early 50's carrier.
    That plane doesn't. 🤔
    And what's on the wing tips ? 😳

    Any story behind the pic ?

    umm... it's an X-Wing fighter B) From some movie, I think.

    Ah. I see 👍

    I'm not a big Star Wars fan.
    Gave up on the franchise when I realized the Imperial Troopers were fake imposters as they couldn't hit ANYTHING with their pew pew sticks. 🙄

    ...any info on that carrier ?

    I'm not much of a Star Wars fan either, but I enjoy many of the memes :)

    Trillium (also called wake robin in New England). We have a nice little "grove" of them out by the utility pole by the street -- which I think is pretty cool. :)

    I just think Chinooks are cool I guess. No, there's nothing special about it.

    This was the original pic. An F2A-3 (Buffalo fighter) of VMF-211 (3rd Marine Aircraft Wing group) on CVE-1 (USS Long Island), bad landing, 2 July 1942. Per wiki, CVE-1 was lead ship of her class and the first escort carrier of the United States Navy.
