The USS Enterprise (CVN-65) was the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and the eighth United States naval vessel to bear the name. Like her predecessor of World War II fame, she was nicknamed "Big E". The length at 1,123 ft (342 m), she is the longest naval vessel in the world. Enterprise had a crew of some 4,600 people and she was commissioned on 25 November 1961. Enterprise, at the time of her decommissioning, was the second oldest commissioned vessel in the United States Navy after the wooden-hulled USS Constitution having served for 51 consecutive years, longer than any other U.S. aircraft carrier.

In October 2001, the United States launched air attacks against Al Qaeda training camps and Taliban military installations in Afghanistan. The actions were designed to disrupt the use of Afghanistan as a base for terrorist operations and to attack the military capability of the Taliban regime. Over three weeks, aircraft from Enterprise flew nearly 700 missions and dropped over 800,000 lbs. of ordnance over Afghanistan. On November 5th, 2001 off the coast of Afghanistan the sailors aboard the Enterprise spelled out "E=MC2 X 40" in honor of the Enterprise's 40th year of service.

Enterprise was inactivated on 1 December 2012 at Norfolk Naval Station, Virginia.

Enterprise-class Aircraft Carrier

The Enterprise-class supercarrier was the world's first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and the longest naval vessel in the world. Although six ships were originally planned, only a single example of the class was ever built: CVN-65 USS Enterprise.
