The U.S.S. Lexington is a museum built on an authentic WWII aircraft carrier. The history is fascinating--we both wished our parents were with us because they would have loved it.
The museum is enormous! We spent three hours there and did not see everything.
Keep an eye on the rising sun. In the next photo, you will find the same symbol, showing the exact spot where a Japanese kamikaze plane hit the Lexington.
Do you see where it was hit? The kamikaze pilot's mission was highly successful, killing 50 people and injuring 132.
On the flight deck...We couldn't believe how tall it was.
