Newport News Shipbuilding will deactivate and de-fuel the ship after her decommissioning. The process is scheduled to begin Summer 2013 and be completed in 2015. Once the Navy dismantles and recycles the ship's reactors, there will be very little left to turn into a museum; virtually everything two decks below the hangar bay would have to be cut apart. What remains of Enterprise following 2015 is currently scheduled to be taken to the State of Washington for scrapping.

I thought it was a dead horse too, until I saw all of the news coming out about the Enterprise being in the gulf. What's up with the flaming anyways?

Not to worry -
I can't remember the source but last week I read the Enterprise was leaving the straits of Hormuz to take up with the 7th fleet in the Indian Ocean.
Not entirely out of reach of Iranian forces but they were never what I was worried about.

I did report it to the Mod's and we'll see if they do their job or not.
