Ouiji Board

No, they don't play this game out on the carrier. It's just what they call this system of keeping track of all the airplanes on the boat.

Each airplane has a cut-out to represent it. The tacks are color coded with who is in line to fly off next.
The jack means that the plane is physically up on a jack being worked on by maintenance crews.

All these moving parts on the board correspond to the moving parts on the carrier deck. It's a pretty low-tech way to keep track of it all, but they have found it to be the most convenient way too.

Our little COD looks like a turtle.


  1. Awww...look how cute your little COD is! I do believe that sometimes computers DO NOT make life easier--Low TEch is the way to go!

  2. cool never knew the board had a name
