The pictures taken close to the Norfolk Navy base appear to be taken from a boat in the bay or from the tunnel bridge. It shows several carriers..but only four of the full sized carriers. The Norfolk Navy base also houses the amphibious type carriers for troops , helicopters, and Harrier type aircraft. They will not handle f14s,f18s etc etc as they have no catapult or arresting gear features for this type of operations.
What you see is three large nuclear carriers and the french carrier third one from the right. In the left hand margin you see the amphibious carrier. Some peoples do not know the difference in the amphibious carriers and the full sized carriers. Unless you have been around them a bit they all look alike to many.
I live across the bay from the Navy base..I can see them any day from here.
