US Navy Series Car #2 bears the silhouette of the Essex Class Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet, CV-12. Commisioned in 1943, the Hornet served in the Pacific Theater throughout World War II, and was regularly dispatched to the 7yh Fleet in the Far East during the Vietnam Conflict. Measuring 872 feet long with a beam of 147-1/2 feet, the Hornet was capable of cruising in excess of 32 knots. Her place in history was secured in the late 1960's as the recovery carrier for the Appllo space mission.
