Stock photo from wikipedia. This thing is giant! Such an awesome aircraft carrier. Crazy how this is from 1942.
First, this 1:1. It’s a Grumman TBF Avenger bomber plane. It was piloted by a guy named Merton A. Bobo and the other was George H. W. Bush.
Next, we have this rad Blue Angles F/A 18 Hornet? I think. Pictured next to it is Mrs. ULY.
Deep in one of the levels of the ship was a room that had a buuuunch of plane, ship and submarine models. They had things from colonial times to modern warfare from all countries. I recommend clicking the pics, wait til the large image opens within the post then right clicking to open in another tab so that you can zoom in at the maximum image size on your screen,
BONUS: I took this pic I found rather interesting and sort of LOL-like. It was a control panel for the few torpedoes the ship had on board. Notice the pews.
Lol it was located in the ship’s chapel :]
