Aircraft Carrier Evolution

Here is a great comparison of the evolution of the Kitty Hawk class carrier islands to the Nimitz class. In the background is USS America CV-66 which had her PriFly moved forward to above the bridge, then Big John (USS John F Kennedy CV-67) had an angled smoke stack. After that Nimitz and Ike were Nuclear powered as well as the rest of the class, the other differences are the placement of the SPS-48 and SPS-49 radars as well as mast configurations. #ussamerica #cv67 #ussjohnfkennedy #cv67 #ussnimitz #cvn68 #usseisenhower #cvn69 #flynavy #aviationsafari #aviationpreservation #boneyardsafari
