Farewell: USS Enterprise Starred In History And Film

NPR story
In its illustrious history, the Enterprise served 
at the center of international events for a half-century — 
from the Cuban missile crisis to Vietnam to the Iraq War.
And it had a distinguished Hollywood career as well, 
playing a leading role in the 1986 film Top Gun, 
which starred Tom Cruise as a young naval aviator.
When the Enterprise slipped into the waters 
off Norfolk for the first time, it was a modern marvel, 
more than 1,000 feet long. 
"She was certainly the largest warship built
 by any nation up to that time," 
says naval expert Norman Polmar.
