Re: What's going to happen to the old CVA67?
Sorry, mixed her up with Enterprise. Boston and Maine were both interested in the ship as a museum. Right now she is on "donation hold".
CVA 67 had 8 nuclear reactors. In order to remove the radioactive cores and associated equipment, the ship was cut open for access, with many hull pieces removed. She was then scrapped. Trying to preserve her as a museum while removing the reactors would have required major rewording and reconstruction.
Movement to have her as a Museum but did that fall through?
