End of an era, for sure.

Enterprise was a game changer.

re: #1 researchok

Those who have served on the ship have a unique camaraderie. It is the second-oldest ship in the Navy after the USS Constitution, and its age has frequently shown. Sailors who work on the Enterprise have a saying: "There's tough, then there's Enterprise tough."

I was ferried out to "Yankee Station" multiple times back in the 60s. Landed and catapulted off her decks and visiting guest. Awesome ship and crews.

It's a shame.

Time to retire.

The Enterprise has required $30 million in annual maintenance costs in recent years and $55 million in annual operating costs, said Lt. Cmdr. Sarah Self-Kyler, the Enterprise’s spokeswoman.

Inside the ship’s mechanic shop, sailors worked long hours making new surface grinders, drill pressers, gears and flanges from big blocks of brass and steel.

“This is an old ship,” Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Petronio, the machine shop’s leading petty officer, said last month. “They stopped producing these parts a long time ago.”

Pity she can't be preserved. She's earned a spot as a museum ship, but I understand why that can't be done with a nuclear-powered ship.
