Did You Know?


On 17 October 1998 USS Hornet (CVS-12) opened as a museum ship in Alameda, California. She appears on the National Register of Historic Places; she's also both a National Historic Landmark and a California Historical Landmark. See more »


It is stated that Harm's father made at least one cruise on the Hornet. Not if he was flying F-4 Phantoms. As with the Ticonderoga, F-4's never flew off either ship. The Phantom was just too heavy. The flight decks of the Essex class carriers could not handle that kind of weight. See more »


Lt. Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: Somebody took that chain down.
Sibby Lonegro: Who? There's nobody on board but us.
[a ghostly metallic moan echoes through the ship]
Sibby Lonegro: [snickering] Maybe the 'old girl' did it. Doesn't like you pokin' around in her innards.
Lt. Cmdr. Harmon 'Harm' Rabb, Jr.: You're the one that wants to cut her into razor blades.
Sibby Lonegro: You're right. Maybe it's me she's after. Oooh... I better get out of here before I have an accident.
