USS Lexington CV-16 museum. Aircraft carrier built during World War II for the United States #Navy
USS Lexington CV-2 was so badly damaged during the war, it had to be scuttled at one point, but this newly built aircraft carrier (CV-16) was immediately deployed with the same name, in an effort to demoralize the Japanese. The Japanese called it 'The Blue Ghost' as it reappears after sink

Throwback @ Corpus Christi, Texas
Spent 4 hours on the aircraft carrier.
Very strong wind, wanted to take a stroll at the beach but ended up just stopped by 15 minutes.
Cmdr. Edward Steichen onboard the USS Lexington (CV-16) in November 1943.
He served as the head of the American Expeditionary Force’s photographic division during World War I and attained the rank of Colonel by war’s end, after which he became involved in fashion photography. By the time the United States became involved in World War II, Steichen had retired from photography and was in his early 60s. He attempted to enlist in the military but was denied because of his age. The Navy eventually brought him in to serve as the director of the Naval Aviation Photographic Unit, and he was commissioned as a Lieutenant Colonel.
Steichen was serving on the Lexington by late 1943, and in November was present when the ship took a torpedo strike to the stern during a Japanese air attack. In another instance, Steichen was positioned off the port stern of the ship in the netting extending over the water so he could photograph incoming planes and the landing signal officer (LSO) guiding them in. An incoming F6F Hellcat was unable to abort its approach and crashed into the flight deck. The LSO and his assistant dove practically on top of Steichen, but he still got the shot. Steichen was directed the 1944 documentary “The Fighting Lady” which detailed the USS Yorktown’s (CV-10) operations in the Pacific, and by the end of the war was in charge of all of the U.S. Navy’s combat photography. He retired as a Captain.
If you ever have a chance to do the paranormal tour of the Lexington, do it. You won’t regret it. 😱😨 4.5 hours of exploring parts of the ship not open to the public after hours with readers and a very knowledgeable tour guide. Crazy stuff.

In 1945, the US Navy installed six M45 quadmounts aboard #USSLexington.
Testing was largely positive, though it was recommended upscaling the weapon to accommodate 20mm cannons for greater power.

In 2018, a Douglas TBD Devastator was found in the wreckage of the USS Lexington. Even after 76 years in the water at 10,000 feet of depth, the structure and paint still holds up incredibly well!
