    The NIMITZ- CLASS Aircraft Carriers are the supreme example of just what shipbuilders and engineers are capable of doing. The F fighter jets, the Surveillance Aircraft and the Chinook Helicopters on each Carrier are unbelievable machines, but an Aircraft Carrier underway, cutting a crisp bow wave into the blue water, is a magnificent sight. The Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) arrives pierside at Naval Base Kitsap Bremerton on Jan. 13, Nimitz was undergoing a planned incremental availability at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and Intermediate Maintenance Facility.

    Overall, I would highly recommend this book to any modeler wanting reference to the aircraft carriers of the Nimitz class, or to any person who is interested in the history of aircraft carriers as a whole. The art and photography are very good, and again, the book is well written and informative. The nuclear-powered NIMITZ-class aircraft carrier is a much larger and deeper draft ship than its steam-driven predecessors. Thus, the dredging of the berthing areas, turning basin and the access channel adjacent to NAS North Island is necessary. Aircraft carriers are generally estimated to have useful operating lives of 50 years.
