Join us Saturday, April 16 for a special docent-led tour of the historic USS Hornet, moored at Alameda Point, and experience simulated flight operations on this “Living Ship Day” in which aircraft will be lifted to the flight deck and placed in launch position. As part of the event, a hot lunch will be served in the ship’s Ward Room, followed by a “surprise” speaker commemorating what will be the 69th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo.
This spectacular aircraft carrier museum has vintage aircraft, helicopters, an engine room, a navigation room and flight deck. Learn about the USS Hornet’s major role in the Pacific battles of World War II, service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and in recovering the Apollo 11 and 12 astronauts on their return from the moon. To top it off, take in the spectacular views of San Francisco Bay!
