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

Redirected from USS George H. W. Bush

USS George H. W. Bush (CVN-77) is the planned name of the tenth Nimitz class aircraft carrier of the United States Navy. It is scheduled to be launched in 2009.

If former President of the United States George H. W. Bush is still living at the time of launching, the aircraft carrier will be one of a very small number of United States Navy ships named for living persons. (The first was USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70); others include USS Ronald Reagan (CVN-76), USS Arleigh Burke (DDG-51)[?], USS Hyman G. Rickover (SSN 709)[?], USS Jimmy Carter (SSN-23)[?], and USNS Bob Hope (T-AKR-300)[?].)
