The Midway: A museum on an aircraft carrier
The aircraft carrier Midway was commissioned a week after the end of World War II and served as the Persian Gulf flagship during Operation Desert Storm in 1991. It was the longest-serving U.S. Navy carrier of the 20th century and held the title of largest ship in the world from 1945 to 1955. The carrier is now a floating aviation museum in San Diego.
