The Kitty Hawk by ET2 Darren Drake
The Kitty Hawk pulls into port on the island of Guam. This is a beautiful view of the aircraft carrier as tugs pull on its side. The USS Kitty hawk had its keel laid into place on Dec. 27th, 1956. Three and one half years later, on May 21st, 1960 ,the kitty hawk was launched by the New York Shipbuilding Corporation in Camden, New Jersey. After nearly a year of rigorous testing to see if she was capable to be a fighting vessel, the USS Kitty Hawk was commissioned into the Navy, April, 29th 1961. Her first captain of the kitty hawk was Captain W. F. Bringle. The following information is just from memory and may be wrong, however, the kitty hawk is 1032 feet long, has four engines, weighs 80,000 lbs, travels at a max speed of about 38 knots, carries about eighty aircraft and has a crew of around 6,000 sailors.
