NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - A famous U.S. aircraft carrier will take its final voyage Thursday.
Huntington Ingalls Industries announced Monday the Navy's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier will be inactivated Thursday after taking its final voyage.
The 51-year-old vessel will be towed to Newport News Shipbuilding on Thursday morning, and it's formal decommissioning will take place once the defueling process at the ship yard is finished, according to a USS Enterprise media release.
Approximately 100 shipbuilders who helped build and maintain the ship will be aboard when she docks at Pier 2 around 10 a.m. Other docked ships in the area will blow and whistle horns to honor the aircraft carrier.
The ship was deployed 25 times and served in almost every major U.S. conflict during her life-time, including the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Vietnam conflict, the Cold War, and the Gulf Wars.
