USS Enterprise as a bridge
April 02, 2012
My husband was a commissioning crew member of this legendary ship. I just wanted to set the record straight - IF the ship was to be used for anything (that’s a BIG “if”), it would have NO nuclear elements, no reactors. It would be a shell. It is scheduled to be “gutted” of its propulsion system BEFORE it’s even decommissioned. That’s straight from the ship’s commanding officer and the Navy.
If anything is to be salvaged and preserved, it might be the superstructure of the Enterprise. It could possibly end up as a municipal museum or part of some place like the Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum.
Ketchikan, DON'T WORRY. It most likely will stay where it was birthed - the Norfolk, Virginia area.
