Nice! It was quite a shock to realize they're already retiring the Nimitz... until I realized it was commissioned in '75. I was on the GW, and saw the Enterprise, America, first JFK, and up through the Truman while I was in. The USS Cole was part of our battle group and was attacked during my last deployment.
Thanks for the news!
Dang, i feel old did my 3 WestPacs aboard the USS Coral Sea CV43 and the USS Ranger CV61, both gone to the scrappers, they tried saving the Ranger as a museum in the northwest but the NAVY instead sold it for a dollar to be scrapped.
Carriers should go the way of Battle Ships..But they wont
I'm not sure why you say that. Carriers made battleships obsolete. They're a way to project power anywhere in the world. You don't need the permission of any government to sail them in international waters. And although you can fly the world over, it'd be a lot harder.
