    Pretty incredible in size & scope. Larger boat but manned by a smaller crew. Being a fan of the Big 'E' since I was a knee-high, it was sad to see the picture of the first nuclear carrier, USS Enterprise being scrapped in the dock along side the newer USS Ford being built.

    The Enterprise served American interests from 1960 until last year. Like the B-52, an iconic and reliable design with longevity.
