The USS Kitty Hawk, originally designated CVA-63, is a traditionally powered aircraft carrier and is the last traditionally powered aircraft carrier to be retired by the U.S. Navy. Belonging to the first ship of the Kitty Hawk-class aircraft carrier, the Kitty Hawk is the last traditionally powered aircraft carrier to be retired in the United States. Since then, the U.S. Navy aircraft carrier has been fully nuclear powered.
The warship was built by the New York Shipbuilding Company. Construction began in 1956, launched in 1960, and entered service in 1961.
In 1992, the ship went to the Persian Gulf to attack Iraqi targets. On March 2, 1999, the Kitty Hawk participated in the Guam military exercise, and was later ordered to perform air patrols in the "no-fly zone" in southern Iraq in the Persian Gulf. In February 2003, he went to the Gulf region to participate in the Iraq War.
In January 2009, the Kitty Hawk was officially decommissioned at the naval port of Bremerton, Washington.
