Q'ns about retired airframe

It is common knowledge that Enterprise was built with eight reactors and the Nimitzes and later built with only two. The official cover story is because two are less expensive than eight. The real reason is this: only two of Big E's reactors are to make the propellers go. The other six are for time travel/the warp engines. BRB, gotta check out a black helicopter outside my window.
 
Max, can you speak to Russia's dilithium processing capabilities?
No. There wasn't any ship in Russian Navy since 1696 which name even remotely resembled the word and meaning Entreprise. :p
But let me note that Mr. Rickover was born in Russian Empire and then inspected the first ever nuclear-driven ship here, in Russia:)

I'm not sure what any of that has to do with your dilithium production. What are you trying to hide, Max?

The tactical purpose of the high speed is to race against French and British CVNs in the annual NATO regatta (pictured).

It's easy to grin,
When your ship has come in,
And you've got the stock market beat.

But the man who's worth while,
Is the man who can smile,
When his shorts are too tight in the seat.
 
PPC seat in Bear D enclosed, my snaps. Through the windscreen one can see the Ukranian MD83, crashed a month ago in IEV Intl - with collapsed main gears and removed engines. Question - why there wasn't a single tailhook airplane with similarly businessjet-like installed engines, just like here?
