The 325 metre/ 1067 feet USS FORRESTAL was put into service in 1955. At the time it was considered to be the first “super carrier” and it was even large enough that a Lockheed C-130 HERCULES could land on it. The FORRESTAL became widely known when a tragic occurrence happened aboard on June 29 in 1967. Prior to a mission one of the parked F-4 PHANTOMS accidentally fired an air/ground missile at an A-4 SKYHAWK that led to a severe explosion with many casualties. The carrier was repaired at a Norfolk shipyard and during the next couple of decades it was upgraded several times. The ship was refurbished in 1992 for the last time but due to its out-dated power train consisting of antiquated steam engines it was decommissioned in 1993. These days the FORRESTAL serves as a museum ship and is on exhibition in Newport, Rhode Island.
