Kos,
Those are not holes for screwdrivers :-) Those are holes through which water and fire retardant fluid is spread onto the flight deck in case of a fire on it.

As you know, the flight deck is a dangerous place with lots of aviation fuel spilling around, and hot engines and machinery around. All of these can potentially lead to a very dangerous fire hazard with the highly inflammable aviation fuel. Thus all flight decks on aircraft carriers have these holes so that any fuel that is burning on the surface may be quickly washed away overboard.

Very rare pictures of the Sikorsky UH3s (US made versions of the Brit Sea Kings) that came as part of the Jalashwa. Ofcourse Maz took some last year for BR.. But these are the only other ones we saw since Dec 2009

Shiv Aroor said...

Jagan: I've taken a few more. Will post later today.

Dear Shiv,
The heading says "from somewhere in the Bay of Bengal" and then you go on to qualify the place as "off Kakinada"! Awesome!

To Jagan@10.52AM: It is wrong to refer to the UH-3 as being a US-made version of the Sea King. In reality, it is the other way around. The UH-3 was designed and produced by the OEM--Sikorsky Aircraft. Subsequently, the licence-production franchise for the UH-3 was given by Sikorsky to Westland Helicopters and MV Agusta (both these companies are now merged under AgustaWestland Helicopters) who in turn produced it as thr Sea King and AS-61. The IPR of all Indian Navy-operated Sea Kings and UH-3s belongs to Sikorsky, and not AgustaWestland.
