The Crazy Process of Repairing US Largest Aircraft Carrier After 25 Years at Sea

Welcome back to the our channel to explore the processes that go through the maintenance and overhaul of the enormous Aircraft Carriers. This is some old footage, CVN65 was refitted in 1994, decommissioned in 2012, and sent to the scrap year din 2017.   She isn't a Nimitz class, the Big-E is her own class, she was 1 of 5; however, they never made the other 4.  She is the first nuclear carrier and one of the longest ships ever made. The Nimitz class ships are next for decommissioning, the BIG-E was the first decommissioned Nuclear ship sent to the scrap yard. so it is taking a long time to figure out how to safely scrap her nuclear reactors.  Most ships decommissioned are sank as target ships. That would be more horrible in my opinion. The anchors from Big-E have been sent to the new carriers which each will have one anchor from Big-E. CVN-80 a Ford class carrier Enterprise will be built using the scrap iron from CVN-65, plus one anchor will be moved over to the new ship from the old. Big-E will carry one.
