No, Norfolk, Virginia. November 10, 2001.

My son was aboard, although he was on duty at the time I took the picture and wasn’t one of the sailors manning the rails.

That was the deployment when Enterprise reached her top speed, which is still classified, but she outran her escorts. [emoticon]

^ That’s a nice shot of the Big E early in her service life. Pre-1980 anyway, as she has her original island with the SCANFAR radar array on top.

A new Gerald R. Ford-class carrier, CVN-80, is under construction now, and will be the ninth US Naval vessel the bear the name Enterprise. It should be in operation by 2027.

I saw it in Bremerton at PSNS getting retrofitted for the above.

That link is for the Big E in W Springfield Mass. and is no where near Long Island.


3 hours from Long island to Springfield is local for camping in my book.

Hello, I went to Jr. High School right across the river from the Big E in Agawam. What type of rig do you have. What kind of services do you need. How far are you willing to travel daily to/from. It is an awesome fair, highlighting the New England states. Something for everyone. When I was a young kid, my mom worked for the accounting department. One of her tasks was to collect the cash & receipts from the rides and concessions. I got to ride on all the rides while she worked. I get nauseous just thinking about it.

I live right across the river from NNSY where the Big E was decommissioned and now sits at the pier awaiting its fate. It's sad to see her stripped down and rusting away at the very Yard where is was conceived and built not so long ago.
