Dr. David McKay – Friday, August 8th, 3 p.m.

Calling all Sailors and Airmen that served aboard USS Enterprise (CVN-65)!  Dr. David McKay will give a special presentation about USS Enterprise at 3 p.m., Friday, August 8 at the National Naval Aviation Museum. Dr. McKay has conducted extensive research and written a comprehensive book about this famed aircraft carrier.
 
The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise — Big E — was an icon of her time. During her 51 years of service in the United States Navy she lived up to her name and achieved many “first” and “only” accolades. “Big” described not only her physical size but also alluded to her spirit and stature in the eyes of the Navy, U.S. citizens, and admirers from around the globe. Big E sailed for over half a century, completing 25 major deployments and serving in every U.S. fleet. She represented the United States in almost every major naval operation from 1961, starting with the Cuban Missile Crisis and ending with Operation Enduring Freedom.

This presentation is FREE and the public is invited to attend. For more information on exhibits, events and attractions, visit www.NavalAviationMuseum.org or call the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation at (850) 453-2389 or (800) 327-5002.
