|This 69-year-old aircraft carrier had a distinguished 39-year |
career before it became the Intrepid Sea, Air, and Space Museum.
The ship underwent a 2-year, $120 million renovation
in 2006–8 (but not before the Navy had to spend an additional,
unexpected $3 million to dredge 39,000 cubic yards
of muck so the ship could be moved—oops).
She's looking good now, and next month will become
the new home of the Space Shuttle Enterprise.
