USS Kitty Hawk

The aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk just left Sydney after visiting for a week one last time before going off to be decommissioned. I can't believe how big it is. About 7000 people are on board. And..... it brought some wonderful memories of going to see "Top Gun" starring Tom Cruise before he turned weird.
USS Kitty Hawk was named after Kitty Hawk, the town where the Wright brothers first took flight in their airplane. LP thinks that Pop flew the first airplane, but it was really the Wright brothers......
