Navy to name newest carrier in honor of former President
9 December 2002

Secretary of the Navy Gordon R. England will name the Navy's
tenth Nimitz class aircraft carrier in honor of World War II
Naval Aviator and former President of the United States George
Herbert Walker Bush during a ceremony today at 3 p.m. EDT in the
Pentagon Auditorium, room 5A1070.

-USN-


Keel was laid in 2003

Latest update is


Newport News, Va. (Mar. 8, 2005) – The 700-ton bow unit, the final keel section of the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier George H. W. Bush (CVN 77), is lowered into place in the dry dock at Northrop Grumman Newport News shipyard. George H. W. Bush is being built using modular construction, a process where smaller sections of the ship below the waterline are lowered into place in dry dock. George H. W. Bush is the second carrier to have the new bulbous bow design that provides more buoyancy to the forward end of he ship and improves hull efficiency. George H. W. Bush is the tenth and final Nimitz-class aircraft carrier and her christening will occur in 2006 with delivery to the U.S. Navy in 2008. Photo courtesy of Northrop Grumman Newport News (RELEASED)

Considering that CVN-76 is Ronald Reagan, CVN-77 is Bush Sr, logically CVN-78 should be USS WIllam Jefferson Clinton !!! how likely is that to happen!!

Ill bet my life that Clinton will never have a carrier named after him. The CVX will most likely be named after George W. Bush. There's still a likelyhood Clinton might have a smaller vessel such as a destroyer or transport named after him, definately not a carrier. The navy tends to take the naming of carriers very seriously.

The Navy along with the rest of the military tends to like president that increase the budget not decrease it, so I'm still keeping my fingers crossed about CVN-78 George W. Bush.

I'm hoping that they name the new class after G.W. Bush. That would be sweet to have the Bush class carriers dominating the seas for the next 30 years.

And oh yeah - no way in HELL Clinton gets a frigging coast guard cutter named after him, much less a bloody nuclear carrier!

Well, if this is true, then the next carrier would be named the : SS Usama Bin Laden. Because he has done more to increase US military spending than any other individual in the history of the country.

the Ronald Reagan was meant to end the Nimitz class. And the CVX class was meant to start there was not a class name yet.

CVX was cancelled, the new class is the CVNX, or basically a pimped Nimitz. As for the name, I believe that the Saratoga should be used, or Coral Sea since my Dad served on them. W is too alive and in action to have his own carrier, Clinton too.

Ronald Reagan was alive when they were building his carrier, grant it he was old and never got to christen it, but his wife got to.

Looks like they are already putting George W Bush on some jets. Here is a picture of an F/A-18 taken at a local airshow
