The Last Voyage – USS Enterprise

The legendary USS Enterprise aircraft carrier has served as a constant reminder of American military power. After serving in every major conflict since the early 1960s it has now finally been decommissioned.

“You go up on this flight deck, four and half acres of US sovereign territory, it can go wherever we need it to go without a permission slip.” For five decades this giant war machine has patrolled the world’s oceans, featuring in Hollywood blockbusters and engaging with every major conflict since the Cuban missile crisis. But as the world’s conflicts change, so has technology, and now warships like the Enterprise are being replaced. “We’re building an aircraft carrier right now that’s going to be a technological leap that will be so much further advanced.” For Eric Young, the ship’s longest serving crewmember, it’s an emotional farewell. “It’s been a great ship. A great tour for me. There’s a lot of history here.”
