Rusty

Rusty

In Charleston, South Carolina.

Aboard the USS Yorktown. A rusted catapult track for jets taking off of the deck of the carrier. I found something strangely beautiful in this corrosive decay. The catapult and the jet’s engines get the thing going 165 mph in 2 seconds, getting up to takeoff speed in about 100 yards or so.

Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to ask for help…even a fighter jet can’t reach its potential without an extra boost under certain conditions.
