Jet Ski Brian

The Big E's Final Departure

2 posts in this topic

I was out fishing yesterday on my jet ski (report to follow) and was privileged to see the USS Enterprise depart the Norfolk harbor. I was at the Chesapeake Bay bridge tunnel around the first island when it passed through out to the Atlantic. There were plenty of people on the island and pier to see her off. The ship is the longest and first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and even at over fifty years old still quite a sight to see. I was glad I was on the water to see her leave on what will be the final 6 month deployment before being retired.

Here are some pictures I took today, they do not do it justice.
