We had a great time today visiting the Lexington. Nickname the Lady Lex, she entered service in 1928 with the Pacific Fleet. She served longer than any other carrier in the world

F18 Hornet

F14 Tomcat

In 1980 the Lexington was the first ship to have female sailors. This is their berth area. 

And I thought my RV was small. There are 3,500 beds on board

Capability to machine any replacement parts needed on the ship
