How can fog be on the flight deck of a ship. -- jodimiller
My guess, the plane is colder than the air, so you see steam fog rising off of it like Henry`s grill. -- weathermatrix
Sorry maybe some fog but I think what we are seeing is steam from the system that throws the jet into the air. They have two runways on which they launch the jets. They take turns launching them. Watch Topgun, you can see the steam on the flight deck -- johnstownwildfire
