Roamy here. I’m continuing my dig through the family albums for some of the more interesting museums. Anchored in New York City is the Essex-class aircraft carrier USS Intrepid.
The USS Intrepid served from 1943 to 1974 and was the first to launch aircraft using a steam-powered catapult.
We visited before the renovation, so I’m sure the layout has changed since then. There were exhibits on the kamikaze attacks as well as 9/11.
The Intrepid also recovered Scott Carpenter after the Aurora 7 Mercury mission and John Young and Gus Grissom after their Gemini flight.
Lots of aircraft to see.
The Grayback-class USS Growler submarine is also part of the Intrepid museum, but it was closed to the public when I was there. I hope to see it again someday.
