USS Midway Museum - San Diego Bay

The USS Midway was commissioned in 1945, and stayed in service until 1992. When it was built it was the largest ship in the world for 10 years. In 2004 it was opened as a museum, in San Diego on the Bay alongside Harbor Drive. (If some of these pictures look a bit distorted - it's not your monitor - I used my fisheye lens the whole time.) 


Looking down on the flight deck. They have a large display of aircraft on the deck.

On the bridge.




In one of the control rooms. Looks like they've picked me up on their radar.




We wandered all over the ship.




Looking down into one of the ordnance storage areas. This ship has 18 decks.
