USS Enterprise Completes Its Final Voyage


The world’s first nuclear aircraft carrier has returned home from it’s final deployment. USS Enterprise will be scrapped after more than 50 years of service. You can watch TPC’s coverage above.

The Navy is planning an “Inactivation Week” for the legendary ship, November 27 – December 1.  From the official USS Enterprise website:

All Veterans of Enterprise, families and friends, and those who share in the pride of Big E are invited to attend the Inactivation Ceremony and to visit the ship in the week leading up to the Ceremony.

The ship will be scrapped because the work involved in removing Enterprise’s nuclear reactors will make the costs of restoration as a museum ship prohibitive.
