USS Enterprise (CVN-65)

A model of the first Nuclear powered aircraft carrier in the world, USS Enterprise (CVN-65).

 

The Enterprise is the 8th ship to bear the name, following the famous "Big E" (a nickname shared by this carrier) of WWII, the most decorated combat ship in US history.

 

USS Enterprise (CVN-65) is currently the oldest in active duty, having been commissioned in 1961. From the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962 to the second war in Iraq, Enterprise is scheduled for decommissioning in late 2012.
