Probably needed for the mock-ups they been building but seriously
Many years ago I contacted Newport News for CV-6 plans. Spoke to corporate historian so and so who told me the information was classified. He was not kidding. Waited a few months contacted again got a different so and so and he said it was proprietary information not available to the public.
Great work if you can get it.
been keeping this silent for awhile . I sent every one I had 1200 images . Legal externals and HB. WHERE can I legally get dimensions? Length overall from bulbous nose aft....Length overall at water line....Length overall at FD level ? Is the Hull beam midships same as NIMITZ? Both appear to fit in the same dry dock..so hence my guess at width. Often wondered how they got the NIMITZ dimensions from the get go. Newport News questions I get crickets .......sources ?
