The US Navy has sold two huge aircraft carriers, the USS Kitty Hawk and the USS John F. Kennedy. Both were built at the beginning of the 1960s and count to the Kitty Hawk class. They are over 320 meters long and displace 72,000 tons, the crew was over 3000 men. Both beams have been taken out of the service long ago, now it was decided on their further fate: both carriers are scrapped.

End in Texas

Both ships are brought to Texas, the Kitty Hawk is probably dragged around Cape Horn last time. A schedule does not exist. That the ships are scrapped has been known since 2017. At that time, the message for the former crew members was a shock. They had hoped that the carriers of the junkyard will be spared. They sat down for a survival as a museum ship. Aircraft carriers are less suitable for storage in the reserve fleet than other ships. A supplier or a combat ship like a frigate can be mottled more or less functional. Even if equipment and electronics are obscured, these ships would still be useful in conflict. But a carrier has little use without the aircraft he wears.

museum plans failed

the Kitty Hawk, nickname "Battle Cat", was already put out in 2009 after 48 years. She carries her name after the place where the Brothers Wright completed her first flight. She participated in the Vietnam and Iraq war. For 12 years she was screened in the "Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility". The John F. Kennedy was used two years earlier from the active service. Here there were attempts to transform them into a museum ship.
