This is old news. The ship was sunk on May 14th, though it wasn’t reported by the Navy at the time. It made the news on the 20th, though I didn’t notice it until a couple of days later due to the bad case of Starwarsitis I was suffering from at the time. I thought I’d mention it here quick since I had been watching the story earlier.
We saw this F-4 on the flight deck of the USS YORKTOWN yesterday afternoon:
Notice this bit:
The ship is gone but not forgotten. And I still think that the next carrier should be named AMERICA.
I’ll be posting lightly over the next couple of days, depending on internet availability.
