The USS Kitty Hawk arrived at Brownsville, Texas last week and will be scrapped for 1 cent.
Sad to see. Think of all she’s seen.
I have a few friends who would have loved to see her sunk as a target instead.
They were on her in Japan, back in the early-mid 00s - when she acquired her last and most infamous nickname.
Also, for the record, no, she was NEVER going to realistically come to North Carolina; the State Department of Cultural and Natural Resources, New Hanover County, the City of Wilmington, and the Battleship NC executive board, CEO, and director all said NO as loudly as possible, even when there was that group trying to raise funds for it.
