CVN 76 online

Don’t know why I didn’t come across it sooner, but the official Navy web site for the USS Ronald Reagan is online. Very thorough, full of info, including the construction process of a vessel longer than the Empire State Building is tall. The christening and commissioning ceremonies are both covered, as are the latest sea and flight deck trials. Lots of pictures abound. The Reagan will go on active duty next year, and should see its first deployment some time in 2005.
