The USS George HW Bush is one of the most deadliest ships on the sea containing some of the most badass planes in the U.S Navy.
The ship is 1092 feet long and towers 20 stories over the Persian Gulf which is where it’s currently located.

This makes it only 158 feet shorter than the Empire State Building.
This ship contains some of the most ferocious warplanes in the entire Navy. Each plane is loaded with thousands of pounds of bombs and missiles.
It takes 4,500 sailors to keep this massive ship running day and night.
In order to keep all these people fed, over 18,000 meals are prepared each day.
After cooking up hot dogs, these soldiers put together bombs capable of leveling a building.
Once the bombs are attached, the planes are ready to head into the war zones of Syria and Iraq.
The jets land every 55 seconds and launch every three minutes. Since the runway is 1/30th of the length of a regular runway, the jets are connected to a catapult allowing them to go from 0 to 184 mph in just two seconds.
Since the ship set sail in February, they have dropped over 250 bombs in Iraq and Syria and have not encountered a serious mishap yet.
As of now they do not know how much longer they will be at sea. ISIS is an adapting force, and they are making it slightly more difficult for our military to find.
But when we do…
In the meantime the soldiers aboard the ship will continue doing what they do best. Killing terrorist and getting jacked.
Former President George Bush, who enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age eighteen back in 1941, approves:
This article has been edited since publication. The ship was originally called the USS George HW Bush Enterprise, now it is correctly listed as the USS George HW Bush. The men on board were called soldiers, and they are now properly described as sailors. We apologize for the errors.
