You can tell the USS Independence was built in Brooklyn, NY. The shipyard was inside of the Brooklyn Bridge on the east river and the bridge was too low to sail the carrier under it as shown here. The solution was to build the mast with a hinge at the flight deck and a loop in the attached cabling so they could swing it down when needed without having to unbuild it. See how the superstructure is open the whole length of the mast? I believe the Kitty Hawk had the same deal, but I'm don' member.
I visited the site and played at the falls just before Sgt Shoichi Yokoi, a WWII japanese soldier, was captured a few hundred feet up from the falls. o_0 mind...this was in 1971
Six years later....Thanks!
