The USS Ronald Reagan (CNV 76)

On Saturday I watched the with some friends the commissioning of the USS Ronald Reagan. The USS RONALD REAGAN was built by Northrop Grumman Newport News in Newport News, Virginia, the only company in the United States with the unique ability to build nuclear powered aircraft carriers. RONALD REAGAN is the ninth Nimitz class aircraft carrier. Being nuclear powered, it can operate for more than 20 years without refueling.

I did feel old when my friend's daughter asked us: "Who was Ronald Reagan?"
