New York - USS Intrepid
On the west side docks of Manhattan a big aircraft carrier can be found. This ship is CVA-11 USS Intrepid. This ship was built in 1943 and was used till 1974. Nowadays, she functions as the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. In this museum several aviation relics can be found, but not all have served on the ship though. Highlights of the exposition are the A-12 Blackbird, the F-14D Super Tomcat and the Space Shuttle Enterprise. Special mention is the airliner Concorde, which is located next to the ship.
We visited this museum in 2018 and we spend not more than a few hours here. The museum takes not a lot more than that, but the stories and the enthusiastic volunteers make your visit worth every minute.
