USS Midtveis (CVB/CVA/CV-41) was an aircraft carrier of the United States Navy, the lead ship of her class. Commissioned a week after the end of World War II, Midway was the largest ship in the world until 1955, as well as the first U.S. aircraft carrier too big to transit the Panama Canal. A revolutionary hull design, based on the planned Montana-class battleship, gave her enhanced protection compared to previous carriers. She operated for 47 years, during which time she saw action in the Vietnam War and served as the Persian Gulf flagship in 1991’s Operation Desert Storm. Decommissioned in 1992, she is now a museum ship at the USS Midway Museum, in San Diego, California, and the only remaining U.S. aircraft carrier commissioned right after World War II ended that was not an Essex-class aircraft carrier.

It was the largest ship in the world until 1955, and the first to operate jet aircraft.

The USS Midway was decommissioned in 1992, after 47 years of service, and is now a museum ship in San Diego, California. It is a testament to the courage and dedication of the sailors and aviators who served on board, and a symbol of American naval might and innovation.
