    CV-69 is the Carl Vinson, CV-77 is the George H.W. Bush, CV-65 is the Enterprise, CV-75 is the Harry S. Truman, and CV-72 is the Abraham Lincoln. And, the amphibious assault ships, while nowhere as big, are also quite impressive as we don't see all those amazing hovercraft inside.

    CVN-69 is the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, not the Vinson. I served aboard Ike in 1979 - 1980 in AIMD dept. You really have no idea just how huge these ships are until you are standing there on the pier.
