I meant parked at the pier in front of us and that was from 85-87 that I am talking about.

She used to be in front of us usually when I was on the Coral Sea. Both ships had a great history and sorry to see her go.

It would be nice to keep her as a museum but I was told she will be cut up primarily to get the nuclear power plant out.

There were 6 Big E,s soon to be 7. The CVN80 is to be renamed.

I believe 8 ships have carried that name.

I hope she goes off somewhere to become a piece of history in the form of a floating museum.

Re: USS Enterprise CVN-65 decoms today

A year ago, almost to the day, I motorsailed past the Enterprise in Norfolk on the newly commissioned Zanshin enroute to the Caribbean; she is an impressive sight even at rest and was instrumental in making the world the place it is today.

Sad day. She will live on in Star Trek reruns though.

I read today they have sold her to a Chinese toaster company.
Soon, every morning for breakfast you can have a little slice from her.

Re: USS Enterprise CVN-65 decoms today

Saw her near Hawaii, maybe in Pearl Harbor, in the mid 80s right after the superstructure change. I didn't believe it was the Big E until I saw the fantail.
