US Carrier scrapped for a penny
Great article with photos on carriers.
Sad story for the Saratoga!
––Thanks for sharing the article. If I remember correctly, they used the Saratoga in the films “Tora, Tora, Tora” and “Midway”. Sad, but progress has it’s price.
Sad, it couldn’t be a memorial, but I’m sure they can only keep so many ships as museums.
Sad that they couldn’t exchange it for Chinese Drywall or Chinese Salmonella Toys since China can’t build her own carriers and has to use trickery like " hey were turning it into a gambling casino" to get ex soviet era carriers out of the Turkish straights.
