    I think, 10 months is not close!

    Your picture date is mid Jan 2004.
    IKE left in Nov 2004.
    Truman left in Feb 2004.

    I am telling you that is the Eisenhower. I know people that worked on her. She had to have the upper decks of the island removed, and all of the computers were replaced. They could not do that in drydock.

    So..what's the verdict?
    And..if it is the Eisenhower, should I change the file name and add info on her?

    This photo shows IKE at NGNN (10/31/2004).

    On May 21, 2001, the Ike returned to Newport News Shipbuiding and Drydock Company(NNS&DDC) to begin a 4 year, $2.5 billion overhaul. As well as replacing her two nuclear reactors with a new core, the Dwight D. Eisenhower underwent complex renovations and major technological upgrades during its scheduled half-life overhaul. On January 25, 2005, Ike left NNS&DDC under her own power, and returned to Norfolk Naval Station, and the fleet.

    I made a mistake! Sorry about that.

    The ship can't be CVN-75, because it is laying some miles to the south in the NNSY (Norfolk Naval Ship Yard).
    The photos are made at the same day, so I'm wrong.

    But, I think the CVN at the pier is not the CVN-69.

    A new theory: It's CVN-71, which entered NNSY on 19th Feb 2004 for DPIA, following her deployment in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
