On a recent trip to San Francisco we toured the USS Hornet. Once we got to Alameda it was very difficult to locate and we had to stop and ask directions. Even the locals were unsure a
to its location. We found the carrier to be in need of a lot of maintenance. It was rather neglected. The flight deck had several interesting aircraft but no information about them. We did, however, meet a docent who flew on and off that carrier and had an interesting conversation with him. There was some unique memorabilia from the Apollo 11 moon landing return to earth. We were very impressed with that. All in all, disappointing – especially when compared to the USS Midway in San Diego which is awesome. The only plus was that we had a Groupon so we didn’t have to pay full admission for the two of us.
