I've never seen a similar "documentary" about LHDs (Amphibious Assault Ships).

I did see one about building an Aegis destroyer, which was cool.

While the Carrier ones are cool, how about one showing LCAC's coming out, Harriers taking off and landing, helicopter assaults, etc!!!

I've sent an email into Travel Channel (currently showing USS Washington special).

That show kicked ass.

My, how far the technology has come! Their engine room was cleaner than our CIC.

I was a bit surprised about how tight a tolerance is called out in the bigger pieces. Seems almost unreasonable.

There were a number of shots showing the steelworkers reworking pieces to bring them to "spec" using the tried and true hammer and torch
