EMILY BARNES/The Times-Union–07/26/07–Crew members watch as the decommissioned John F. Kennedy is turned around by tug boats before it departs Naval Station Mayport, July 26, 2007. The ship is on its way to Hampton Roads, Virginia, where it will remain until dredging work at a naval facility in Philadelphia can be completed, the Navy said. It will take about five days to tow the former aircraft carrier known as “Big John” to Virginia. (The Florida Times-Union/Emily Barnes)
