U.S.S. Hornet

For Fandango’s One Word Challenge: Chain

The aircraft carrier has 2 anchors weighing 30 tons each. A single link in the chain weighs 360 lbs.

The U.S.S. Hornet (decommissioned), sits anchored to Alameda in San Francisco Bay. In addition to her impressive wartime record, she is a Hollywood darling; having had a starring role in Star Trek: The Voyage Home (yes, the one with the whales) where she portrayed her sister ship, the current day U.S.S. Enterprise.
