    Never been on the Big E, but I did get to see the USS Constellation (CV-64) back in ’97, it was impressive!

    Damn. 2 years after I left the Connie. CV-64 was my home for four years.

    The Big E`s days are numbered.It`s a sad thing.

    All of that generation is numbered. Now they get to join the great ships of the WWII generation (y’know, except the ones that sank) as museum exhibits. I just hope that the replacements that are being built are designed for the conflicts of the 21st century (likely a lot of humanitarian and anti-piracy for the forseeable).

    Very sad. My dad got our troop on the Big E when I was a scout. We actually stayed on board overnight – they put us right under the flight deck… didn’t get a lick of sleep. 🙂
