A final goodbye 👋 ⚓ The ex-USS Kitty Hawk is towed from Bremerton, Washington, to a ship-breaking facility in Brownsville, Texas. Kitty Hawk, the Navy’s last commissioned conventional-powered aircraft carrier, operated for 48 years before it was decommissioned in 2009.

I still don’t forgiveyou for letting Enterprise CV-6 go to the scrapyards.

Oh how sad that the USS Kitty Hawk will be no more. Farewell. Job well done.

I took a quick tour of it back in 2004 when it was in Yokosuka, Japan. I was on the USS Juneau LPD-10 (also decommissioned) at the time.

Sad day for sure, seems like yesterday when the Indy was gone.
