No Eels on This Hovercraft

October 3, 2012

The US Navy landed a hovercraft (LCAC) on Ocean Beach today.

(Sorry it gets wobbly half way through, I was holding two cameras and a cup of coffee.)

I just missed it coming ashore (see coffee), but luckily Ed Rabbit caught that part.

And a still shot I managed to get (while videoing in the other hand, thank you very much):



As the LCC departs, we see the Navy celebrating DADT and the conjunction of Fleet Week with the Castro Street Fair:


If Red Dawn had taken place in San Francisco, it would have looked something like this:


(Though to be honest, hovercrafts are pretty damn loud and aren’t going to be sneaking up on anyone.)

Also, this dog was not particularly concerned with the security perimeter (nor camouflage, for that matter).

      You know how they say dogs resemble their owners? Well, just imagine.
