|30 Seconds over Tokyo|
HERE is the website for a lot of the details on the Hornet.
The tour was a long one and there was a lot of up and down the stairways. The placement of your feet was important since the stair treads were short and steep. If OSHA finds out they will probably come and fine the museum.

The Docent was a Vietnam veteran and he was very informed about the ship and all its parts. He was very interesting. The tour cost 16 bucks and was well worth it. Apparently though, the City f Alameda is playing some games with the Museum and they are thinking of moving the Hornet to another port. Since we all saw San Fransisco shun a battleship a few years ago, it may not be moored in the Bay Area in the future. I hope Alameda gets their heads out of their ass about this.
