USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77) History:

USS George H. W. Bush (CVN-77) is the tenth and last Nimitz class supercarrier of the United States Navy. She is named for former President George H. W. Bush, who was a naval aviator during World War II.

She is the second United States aircraft carrier to be named after a naval aviator (Forrestal was the first). Other naval vessels named for aviators include frigates McClusky and Thach, and destroyer Massey, all named for aviators who commanded formations in the Battle of Midway. George H.W. Bush is also the second aircraft carrier, following Ronald Reagan, to be named after a living former President (although Ronald Reagan has since deceased). While still a Nimitz class ship, George H. W. Bush differs significantly from her predecessors, even more so than the differences between CVN 68?0 and CVN 71?6.

Construction began in 2001 by the Northrop Grumman Newport News shipyard, at a cost of $6.2 billion. The aircraft carrier was christened on 7 October 2006, and delivery was set for late 2008.[1] She left Northrop Grumman Ship Building for the first time on 23 December 2008 and was commissioned 10 January 2009 at Norfolk Naval Station[5] prior to her completion. The carrier is scheduled to have acceptance sea trials completed in March, and then be delivered to the Navy in the first quarter of 2009.

George H. W. Bush is the final Nimitz class aircraft carrier; the next carrier built will be Gerald R. Ford, the first of the Gerald R. Ford class of aircraft carriers.
