An Inglorious End To A Once Great Aircraft Carrier: Kitty Hawk Passes The Lone Sailor Statue On The Way To The Scrapyard

The above photo shows the decommissioned aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk passing The Lone Sailor statute in Long Beach, California as the once great warship is towed to a scrapyard in Texas. 

The famous statue of the sailor appears to represent all of the sad and angry former sailors who served on the Kitty Hawk over her nearly 50-year historic history. 

I am one of them. 

Brandon de Haas took the above photo and posted it on the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63 Facebook Page.
