Ocean Ghost by zulumike Ocean Ghost by zulumike
On August 1944; during a violent storm at the Kaiser Shipbuilding Co. at San Francisco Bay the new and largest class of the date broke loose from it's building ways. The mighty carrier was never found. Some say it still roams the open ocean.

Cheers, Mike

If there were some planes that went missing with it, that could bring more mystique of people claiming sightings of ghostly vintage aircraft buzzing by. This should a great ghost story.

It doese have a somber mood. I read that several ships during WW II shipbuilding broke loose from there moorings and went missing during a large storm on the west coast of California. They were eevtually recovered.

I wonder if they should make a ghost ship movie of a warship lost at sea.

This is a concept story only. I think thi was a photo of the USS Enterprise which was built at Newport News Shipbuilding Co.

Kaiser built many "Liberty Ships" during WW II.

Oh I see!

Indeed and quite fast they built them!

By the way did you considered to draw the destroyer USS Eldridge of the Philadelphia Experiment?

Thank you, something a little different from aviation art.

Cheers, Mike
