Happy Holidays! U.S. Navy to give away aircraft carrier

November 28, 2009 · Posted in Commentary 

Last Monday, the Naval Sea Systems Command, NavSea, announced that it will be donating the decommissioned aircraft carrier John F. Kennedy for use as a museum ship.  Initial applications are due by January 22nd, 2010.  If turned into a museum, the JFK would be the first super-carrier to be displayed.  There are currently five active aircraft carrier museums in the United States.

If NavSea receives no viable interest into turning the JFK into a museum within two years, the aircraft carrier will either become scrap metal or be sunk as target practice.  The JFK joins the older retired carriers Ranger and Saratoga on NavSea’s donation-hold list.
