USS Enterprise inactivated

The USS Enterprise (CVN-65) was inactivated today after 51 years of service. The Enterprise was the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and had an illustrious combat and operational record.

CVN-65 was the eight US Navy ship to be named Enterprise. Her predecessor was CV-6, which was the outstanding US Navy aircraft carrier of World War II. The unbuilt CVN-80 will be the next ship to bear that name.
