    1. Maybe they didn't want to use a big pile of scrap to illustrate it

    2. They could have just used file photos of the two ships in question. I know, OCD is strong today.

    3. My Dad helped build the Kitty Hawk when he worked at New York Ship. End of an era. Sad, really.
      Stay safe

    They could have given them to the Taliban for FREE.

  3. The one cent price was set by corrupt officials that will be enriched by the scrap company.

    1. Could be worse. In the past they paid people to take the ships off their hands.

  7. Read they sunk the Kitty Hawk for a coral/barrier reef. My Dad served on the Kitty hawk from 1967 to 1969.

  8. Pretty much guarantee that the exorbitant disposal price would have been caused by out-of-control Environmental Protection Agency. Like all debacles, government is at the heart of everything.
