Saurabh,I'll look around for the pics I took on the Lexington. You'd be amazed at how similiarly set up both ships are. The planes on display too are the same. The ones on the deck were the F4E Fanthom, some F14s and couple of helicopters.

I passed by this a number of times. However never got the time to visit it. You'll find warships converted to museums all over the US. I've seen a couple in Houston and Corpus Christi. Of course we too have our very own INS Vikrant at Mumbai.
