Photos from 1983: Doomsday


A stunning discovery in Virginia: a relatively intact F/A-18 Hornet. Developed for the US Navy and Marine Corps before Doomsday, these strike fighters were originally meant to enter service by the summer of 1984. Virtually all known Hornets were believed to have obliterated by nuclear strikes until the aircraft pictured above was discovered in a ruins of Naval Air Station Oceana in 2007.

Didn't some of the F/A-18s become part of the Commonwealth Armed Forces? Does not the ANZS Commonwealth have F-18s or was it the F-14 Tomcat? The sam goes for SH-60 Seahawks which was to see service in 1984 to replace the Sea Kings.

Personally I would assume that if a particular piece of equipment entered service in 1984 it wouldn’t be widely available on 9/26/83. Looking at the ANZC military page*(which I admit I hadn’t Looked at before) it refers to Australia’s F-18s as being reverse engineered copies built by a local manufacturer. So Let’s assume an original pre-Doomsday American built example is still an amazingly rare find.

Here is an SH-60 Seahawk from Jurassic Park III

And here it is in real life.

Wikipedia states it was meant to replace the Kaman SH-2 Seaspite and the Sea King which were the primary ASW helicopters of the U.S. Navy during 1960s-1970s. First flight was in 1979 while it was formally introduced to the USN in 1984. With Doomsday happening, perhaps the same situation could be said for the F/A-18 Hornets where a pre-Doomsday American version would be a rare find. I'm assuming the ANZC already has the SH-60.
 

In 1997, production began on Hawaii's Big Island of sugarcane-based automobile fuel. This has become a major industry in the Free State."

An A4 pacific seen departing Aberdeen railway station in 1995 with a Glasgow bound service, steam engines saw a major resurgence during the post Doomsday period on the former British rail network due to restrictions on oil consumption.

To this day most railway lines in the Celtic union are run by steam engines though this is starting to change with electrification schemes taking place, certain lines such as the West coast main line from Liverpool to Glasgow never used steam engines post Doomsday as they were already electrified.

A view of Glasgow, 2016. Since Doomsday the city has made strides to modernise itself and is now a major financial and commercial hub, it also boasts a large ship building industry.
