SMITHSONIAN - In November 1910, Eugene Ely of the Curtiss Aviation Company took off in a Curtiss Pusher from the USS Birmingham anchored in the Hampton Roads channel off the Virginia coast. (He landed on the beach.) From this quiet beginning, U.S. carrier aviation has grown into one of the strongest force projections in the world.
LOVEPOP - Today, we are taking the time to salute one of our newest card designs: The U.S. Aircraft Carrier. This design was inspired by the Nimitz aircraft carrier model. With a fleet of 10 ships, it’s the most recognizable U.S. aircraft carrier currently in operation! To create this awesome new card, team Lovepop had the opportunity to collaborate with a former Navy aircraft carrier commander and pilot who works on the production of the newest U.S. aircraft carriers.
