USS Midway Museum Ship, San Diego .

Recommended Posts

Been aboard this cracking museum ship twice now,and still not seen all of her.

 

For anyone that is old enough to remember, the Midway was the carrier on the TV news at the evacuation of Vietnam, ( 1972)  where they were throwing Huey helicopters over the side....so a Vietnamese army officer and his family in a wee aircraft could land on the deck....:)

 

I'm back in a few weeks, to visit her, and the USS Iowa..a Missouri class battleship....:)

 

Entry is/was $10, a great cheap day out...:)

Fantastic mate,could you have imagined them doing this with the ark 9_9,

Ha, they didnt have the foresight to even contemplate such an idea....all they wanted was RID of her @Fred Karno's Army...you would'nt believe how busy the Midway is, especially at the weekends, and its mainly ex vets working as guides and maintenance on her....The UK govt also doesnt have any pride in their services history...which as you know is completely different in the States....It was Memorial Day the day we visited the Midway, their were so many things going on...TV and radio were covering it all...:)
