USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76) Aircraft
USS Ronald Reagan
(CVN-76), the ninth and penultimate Nimitz-class
supercarrier, was the first ship of the United States
Navy to be named for former President Ronald Reagan.
Very few ships of the United States Navy have been named for a person who was alive at the time of the christening; the list includes Carl Vinson (CVN-70), Hyman G. Rickover (SSN-709), Arleigh Burke (DDG-51), John C. Stennis (CVN-74), Bob Hope (T-AKR-300), Ronald Reagan (CVN-76), Nitze (DDG-94), Jimmy Carter (SSN-23), and George H. W. Bush (CVN-77).
The contract to build USS Ronald Reagan was awarded to Newport News Shipbuilding and Dry Dock Company in Newport News, Virginia on 8 December 1994 and her keel was laid down on 12 February 1998. She was launched on 10 March 2001 sponsored by Ronald Reagan's wife Nancy, and commissioned on 12 July 2003, with Captain J. W. Goodwin in command. At the commissioning ceremony, Mrs. Reagan gave the ship's crew the traditional first order as an active unit of the Navy: "Man the ship and bring her to life."

President Reagan died eleven months
later. At the end of the graveside services, the ship's
commanding officer, Navy Captain James Symonds, presented
the flag that draped the former president's casket to
Mrs. Reagan at her request. This was also the flag that
had flown over Capitol Hill on January 20, 1981, when the
president was inaugurated. Captain Symonds also presented
Mrs. Reagan the flag that had been flying over the Ronald
Reagan when the former president died.
USS Ronald Reagan displaces approximately 95,000 tons of water fully loaded and has a top speed of over 30 knots, powered by two nuclear reactors driving four screws, and can sail for 20 years before refueling. She is nearly as long as the Empire State Building is tall at 1,092 feet (333 m) and is 134 feet (41 m) wide at the beam and has a flight deck 252 feet (77 m) wide. The flight deck covers over 4.5 acres (18,000 m?). She carries more than 5,500 sailors and over 80 aircraft.
During her transfer from the Atlantic to the Pacific, she transitted the Straits of Magellan. Her homeport is San Diego, California.
The USS Reagan forms part of Carrier Strike Group Seven (CSG-7) and has Carrier Air Wing 14 embarked.

Ronald Reagan conducted her maiden
port visit in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, from 1114
November 2003. The contract to build Reagan was awarded
to Northrop Grumman Newport News and Dry Dock Company in
Newport News, Virginia on 8 December 1994, and her keel
was laid down on 12 February 1998. The budget for the
ship had to be increased several times and ultimately
$4.5 billion was spent on her construction. This
included a redesigned ship island. Reagan was
christened by Reagan's wife Nancy on 4 March 2001 at
Newport News Shipbuilding, the crew moved aboard on 30
October 2002, and the ship was commissioned on 12 July
2003 at Naval Station Norfolk, with Captain J. W. Goodwin
in command. Vice President Dick Cheney and Lynne Cheney
were both present at the ceremony, as well as Nancy
Reagan, who gave the ship's crew the traditional first
order as an active unit of the Navy: "Man the ship
and bring her to life." Ronald Reagan made her
maiden voyage on 21 July 2003. President Reagan, who did
not attend either the launch or the commissioning due to
Alzheimer's disease, died eleven months later. At the end
of the graveside services, the ship's commanding officer
at that time, Captain James Symonds, presented the flag
that draped the former president's casket to Mrs. Reagan
at her request. This was also the flag that had flown
over Capitol Hill on 20 January 1981, when the president
was inaugurated. At a later date, Captain Symonds also
presented Mrs. Reagan the flag that had been flying over
Ronald Reagan when the former president died.
Ronald Reagan was the first nuclear-powered warship of any kind to be named in honor of a living former president. Unlike most of the other men honored by inclusion in this group, Reagan was not associated with the United States Navy, apart from his term as Commander-in-Chief, though one of his key initiatives in office was the 600-ship Navy program.
The design of USS Ronald Reagan
seal was created entirely by her plankowner crew with
historical assistance provided by staff members at the
Ronald Reagan Presidential Library foundation. The red
border that rings the ship's seal is similar to the
distinctive red rim that defines the White House china
designed for the Reagans during their White House years.
Four gold stars represent President Reagan's 40th
presidency and his four pillars of freedom: individual
liberty; economic opportunity; global democracy; and
national pride. "Peace through Strength" was a
recurring theme of the President's life in public
service. The aircraft carrier is positioned by the West
Coast, representing President Reagan's two terms as
Governor of California and the ship's homeport in the
Pacific Fleet. The three aircraft with their patriotic
contrails symbolize the three major military operations
the President directed during his tenure: Operation
Urgent Fury (Grenada/1983); Operation El Dorado Canyon
(Libya/1986); and Operation Praying Mantis (Iran/1988).
The view of the globe signifies the President's vision of
global democracy, and the center is the United States
representing the country's national pride. Colors of red,
white and blue dominate the seal reflecting the American

USS Ronald Reagan belongs to the Nimitz-class supercarriers, a line of nuclear-powered aircraft carriers in service with the United States Navy, are the largest capital ships in the world, and are considered to be a hallmark in the superpower status of the United States of America.
Aircraft carriers are
numbered with consecutive hull numbers starting with the
CVN-68. The letters CVN denote the type of ship:
"CV" is the hull classification symbol for
aircraft carriers, and "N" indicates
nuclear-powered propulsion. The number after the CVN
means that this is the 68th "CV", or large
Nimitz Aircraft Carrier (CVN-68), the lead ship of the class, was commissioned on September 18, 1976. George H. W. Bush (CVN-77), the tenth and last of the class, was built by the Newport News Shipbuilding Company, and she entered naval service on January 10, 2009. The USS George H.W. Bush will be the first transition ship to the new Gerald R. Ford-class, the first ship of which began construction in 2007 and will incorporate new technologies including a new multi-function radar system, volume search radars, an open architecture information network, and a significantly reduced crew requirement. To lower costs, some new technologies were also incorporated into the Ronald Reagan, the previous carrier to the George H.W. Bush, though not nearly as many as will be involved with George H.W. Bush.
Because of construction differences between the first three ships (USS Nimitz, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Carl Vinson) and the latter seven (from Theodore Roosevelt on), the latter ships are sometimes and erroneously called Theodore Roosevelt-class aircraft carriers, though the U.S. Navy considers them to all be in one class. As the older aircraft carriers come in for their Refueling and Complex Overhaul, they are upgraded to the standards of the latest ships.
The USS Nimitz was the first warship of this class to undergo her initial refueling during a 33-month RCOH at the Newport News Shipbuilding Company in Newport News, Virginia, in 1998. The Dwight D. Eisenhower was next, completing its RCOH in 2005. The Carl Vinson began its RCOH in late 2005. The USS Abraham Lincoln entered the large drydock at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard on September 8, 2006, but she left ahead of schedule on December 18.
