VERY CLOSE TO A COLLISION AT SEA

OK so I decided to change the description now in 2012 to kind of reflect the trend of this video. People are split on whether or not this was close to a collision! The details are this I am on the USNS Supply that is currently refueling the USS Vella Gulf on our port side and the USS Shreveport was on our Starboard side and a couple minutes prior to me grabbing the camera. What happened is the broke away pulled forward and then started to drift over and crossed our bow. You can see the wake as it is on our port side. There was nothing we can do and everything was up to them. They increased speed but the problem was they went hard to starboard and that was a mistake they should have got the speed up and then turned. This was extremely close and we came within approx 40-60 feet of them and although that isn't inches and to most people that isn't close but with these types of vessels and under the circumstances it was very close. So think of those factors when you watch this video.

The 192.5-meter-long Hansa Constitution was travelling along the busy East Lamma shipping channel when it suddenly veered off course. The Hong Kong Marine Department said the ship's main engine broke down. People familiar with the shipping industry say the captain and Hong Kong maritime authorities decided to the best course of action was to beach the vessel to prevent it from colliding with other ships on the busy shipping channel. The crew dropped anchor at the last minute, making loud screeching noises, to slow Hansa Constitution as it headed straight towards the sea wall outside the University of Hong Kong sports grounds in Pok Fu Lam. The ship ground to a halt at around 15.22 local. It then slowly reversed, as Marine, police and fire services rushed to the site. It was eventually towed free. No one was injured. The ship was travelling from Yokohama in Japan to Chiwan port in Shenzhen, China. 目定口呆: 192.5米貨船, 行駛東博寮海峽期間, 突然偏離航線, 直沖香港大學何鴻燊體育中心..直至擱淺岸邊. 海事處表示是主要機件故障. 熟悉船務的人表示船長應是故意把船開離繁忙航道, 避免在停頓前撞倒其他船隻. 船後來被拖走.

Refueling Gigantic Aircraft Carriers With Millions $ of Oil
Before commenting, read the description please. Sailors and Marines conduct a replenishment at sea aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN-68). During this replenishment, oil, equipment and food were transferred. The replenishment occurred in the middle of the Ocean. Because the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) is nuclear-powered, oil will be widely used by the aircraft aboard this Supercarrier. Video also include footage of several aircraft landing and taking off from an other aircraft carrier.

#1 AIRCRAFT NEAR MISS AND UNUSUAL EVENTS COMPILATION
Lots of videos about crashes, but not many about near collisions and incidents. Sometimes the potential for crashes is more harrowing than the event itself. https://www.facebook.com/leeveraction.boundaryzero https://twitter.com/leeveraction https://www.instagram.com/leeveraction_/ https://www.linkedin.com/profile/preview?vpa=pub&locale=en_US
