On January 10, 2009 a remarkable event took place in Norfolk, Virginia. The tenth and final Nimitz Class nuclear aircraft carrier, USS George H.W. Bush, was commissioned. Named for the 41st President of the United States and a former naval aviator, the event brought together nearly 20,000 people. Numerous AOPA members took the time to stop and visit as did at least one of our AOPA President’s Council members. With Presidential arrivals and departures along with flyovers, it was an aviation event of the first order!
