USS Nimitz Aircraft Carrier Model
This unique Aircraft Carrier Model is a great item as a collectible or even for home decor.
The USS Nimitz (CVN-68) is a supercarrier in the United States Navy, the lead ship of her class. She is one of the largest warships in the world.
She was laid down, launched and commissioned as CVAN-68, but was redesignated CVN 68 (nuclear-powered multimission aircraft carrier) on 30 June 1975 as part of the fleet realignment of that year. The ship was named for World War II Pacific fleet commander Chester W. Nimitz, who was the Navy's last fleet admiral. Unlike all subsequent Nimitz class carriers, Nimitz only uses her namesake's surname.
She is also the only carrier of her class and the most recent supercarrier not to be named for someone who held elective office in the United States. Nimitz was homeported at Naval Station Norfolk until 1987, when she was relocated to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Washington.
After her mid-life overhaul and nuclear reactor refueling in 2001, Nimitz was relocated to NAS North Island, in San Diego, California.
