  • 1. Aircraft Carrier Class – CVA 4 Forrestal (4), Kitty Hawk (3), Enterprise and JFK
  • 2. UNATED STATES (CVA-58)
    • Laid Down, Scrapped On The Ways
    • United States (CVA-58) was laid down on 19 April 1949 at Newport News, Va., by the Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Corp., but her construction was terminated on five days later on the 23rd. The "super-carrier" had been designed to la unch atomic bomb-carrying, long-range aircraft and had been an object of controversy between the military services. Designed without a fixed-superstructure, the 1,090-foot, 33 knot carrier would have been, at the time of her scheduled completion, the wor ld's largest aircraft carrier.
    Megszüntetett építés. A CVA-58 építése 1949. április 19-én megkezdődött a Newport News, VA., Newport News Shipbuilding és Dry Dock Corp. hajóépítő vállalatnál, de 5 nap múlva be is fejeződött, és 23 napon belül pedig le is bontották. A szuper-hordozót atombomba bevetésére alkalmas távolsági repülőgépek szállítására tervezték, de alkalmazása a katonai szolgálatok között vita tárgyát képezte. Az 1,090 láb hosszúságú, 4 katapultos, 33 csomós sebességű szállító lett volna a kor legnagyobb repülőgéphordozója.

    • CVA-59 was named after James Vincent Forrestal (1892-1949). He became the first Under Secretary of the Navy in August 1940, charged with building the world's largest Fleet. His brilliant work in procurement and production led to his appointment as the 48th Secretary of the Navy in May 1944. Forrestal carried out this new assignment with such distinction that he was the natural choice as the first Secretary of Defense, a position to which he was appointed in September 1947, and in which he continued outstanding service to the Nation, until he resigned in March 1949.
    • He had served in the US Navy as a naval aviator during World War I.
    CVA-59-et James Vincent Forrestalról (1892-1949) nevezték el, akit 1940 augusztusában neveztek ki a haditengerészet első Legfőbb Titkárának, s aki létrehozta a világ legnagyobb flottáját. Ragyogó munkája a beszerzésben és a termelésben is megmutatkozott, ezért 1944 májusában elnyerte a haditengerészet 48. titkári megbízatását. Forrestalt a nemzetnek tett szolgálata elismeréséül 1947 szeptemberében kinevezték védelmi miniszternek, melyet 1949 márciusi lemondásáig töltött be. Az I. világháború alatt tengerészeti repülőként szolgált az US Navyban.

    • The Battle of Saratoga in September and October 1777 was a decisive American victory resulting in the surrender of an entire British army of 9,000 men invading New York from Canada during the American Revolutionary War. The rebels' victory was overwhelming. After negotiations, Burgoyne officially surrendered on October 17. When news of the American victory reached Europe, France entered the war on the side of the patriots.
    A Saratogai csata 1777 október és szeptember között a Függetlenségi Háború döntő amerikai győzelme volt, amelynek eredményeként a Kanadából New York lerohanására indított brit hadsereget, 9.000 embert bekerítették. A lázadók győzelme elsöprő volt. A tárgyalások után Burgoyne október 17-én megadta magát. Amikor a hírek az amerikai győzelemről elérték Európát, Franciaország belépett a hazafiak oldala mellett a háborúba.

  • 53. History
    • The eighth Enterprise (CVA(N)-65), the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, was launched 24 September 1960 by Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Co., Newport News, Va., sponsored by Mrs. W. B. Franke, wife of the Secretary of the Navy; and commissioned 26 November 1961, Captain V. P. de Poix, in command.
    • After commissioning, Enterprise began a lengthy series of tests and training exercises, designed to determine the full capabilities of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. Immediately her superlative characteristics and performance became obviou s. She began flight operations on 17 January 1962, when an F8U "Crusader" became the first airplane to land on board her giant flight deck. The same aircraft later became the first plane to be catapulted from Enterprise . One month later, on 20 F ebruary 1962, the nuclear-powered carrier played a role in the space age when Enterprise acted as a tracking and measuring station for the epochal flight of Friendship 7, the "Project Mercury" space capsule in which Lieutenant Colonel John H. Glenn , Jr, USMC made the United States' first orbital space flight. The career of the eighth Enterprise had started well.
    • A nyolcadik Enterprise (CVA(N)-65), a világ első atommeghajtású repülőgéphordozóját 1960. szeptember 24-én rendelték meg a Newport News Shipbuilding és Drydock Co. Hajógyárnál Newport News, VA., szponzorálta Mrs. W B Franke, a haditengerészet titkárának felesége; és 1961. november 26-a, V P de Poix kapitány parancsnoksága alatt avatták.
    • Enterprise-t hosszadalmasan tesztelték, hogy elérjék az atommeghajtású repülőgéphordozó teljes képességeit. 1962. január 17-én egy F8U Crusader repülőgép szállt le az óriási repülőfedélzeten, s ugyanezt a repülőgépet katapultatták először. Egy hónappal később, 1962. február 20-án, az atommeghajtású szállító felügyelte a Mercury űrkabint követő Friendship 7 mérőállomást, illetve Ifj.John H Glenn főhadnagy (ezredes), űrhajós, az Egyesült Államok első orbitális űrrepülését. A nyolcadik Enterprise karriere jól kezdődött.
  • 54. Fire aboard Enterprise , 14 January 1969, in Hawaiian waters The massive fire started when a Zuni rocket accidentally exploded under the wing of an F-4. Some of the subsequent 18 explosions were 500-lb. bombs cooking of in multiples, leaving 20-foot holes in the armored flight deck. Losses totalled 28 dead, 343 wounded, and 15 aircraft destroyed. Tűz az Enterprise hordozón , 1969. January 14. Havaii vizek Hatalmas tűz keletkezett, amikor egy F-4 szárnya alatt lévő Zuni rakéta véletlenül felrobbant és sorozatban robbantotta a fedélzeten lévő gépek 500-lb. bombáját. A 18 robbanás 20 láb hosszúságú rést nyitott a páncélos repülőfedélzeten. 28-an meghaltak, 343-an megsebesültek, és 15 repülőgép megsemmisült.

Reclassified as a Multi-purpose Aircraft Carrier (CV-66) on 30 June 1975. Fate: Decommissioned and stricken on 9 August 1996. Sunk in the Atlantic Ocean, off the Virginia coast, on 14 May 2005, after 25 days of tests consisting of underwater and surface simulated attacks on the ship. These tests were intended to provide valuable data on survivability for the next generation of aircraft carriers. According to the December 4, 2006 issue of "Navy Times," ex- America was in one piece and sitting on its keel, some 476 miles east of Charleston, SC, and about 400 miles west of Bermuda, and 16,860 feet (5,139 meters) below the surface. This information was obtained by the USS America Carrier Veterans Association on October 30, through a Freedom of Information Act request.

  • 67.
    • CV-67 is named after John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963), 35th President of the United States of America (1961-1963).
    • (Read about LT John F. Kennedy, USNR, WW2 service at the Naval Historical Center website.)
    • For many observers, Kennedy's presidency represented the ascendance of youthful idealism in the aftermath of World War II. JFK was the youngest person elected US President, and the youngest to die in office.
    • A CV-67-et John Fitzgerald Kennedyről (1917-1963), az Amerikai Egyesült Államok 35. elnökéről (1961-1963) nevezték el.
    • (John F Kennedyről, USNR, WW2 szolgálatáról a Naval Historical Center honlapon olvasható.)
    • Sok embernek Kennedy elnöksége képviselte a fiatalos idealizmus aszcendensét a II. világháború utáni megújhodásban. JFK a legfiatalabb megválasztott-, és a legfiatalabb megölt amerikai elnök.
