by Fred J. Calfior and Douglas W. Miller

AirLeg 51

“On May 12, 1938, Captain N.H. White assumed command of the United States Navy's sixth aircraft carrier, the USS Enterprise (CV-6). Now, that one is not the same as the current day USS Enterprise (CVN-65), which I had the pleasure of being on during my last years in the Navy! Anyway, during World War II, the 'Big E' became known as the fightingest ship in the Navy, surviving 20 out of the 22 major naval air actions of that war. The aircraft catapulted from her decks claimed 911 enemy aircraft destroyed and 71 ships sunk. Several times, she herself was claimed to have been sunk - but no sirree! After World War II, she was finally cut up for scrap in 1959, despite repeated efforts to keep her alive.”
