Midway aircraft carrier

on March 9, 2014

After lunch we headed over to the Midway museum.  The midway is an aircraft carrier built by the US navy during the second world war, though it wasn’t completed until after the war was over.  It served until 1992 shortly after service in operation dessert storm.  In 2004 it was turned into a museum so you can walk around it and see what it was like.

It was really interesting to see the ship.  The most remarkable bit wasn’t seeing the planes or the flight deck, it was seeing everything that went on below deck to keep the ship running, from engineering to the laundry department.  The ship had 4500 crew so keeping it running must have been quite a feat.
