USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77) is the tenth and final Nimitz-class supercarrier of the United States Navy.[1] She is named for the 41st President of the United States and former Director of Central Intelligence George H. W. Bush, who was a naval aviator during World War II. The vessel’s callsign is Avenger, after the TBM Avenger aircraft flown by then-Lieutenant George H.W. Bush in World War II. Construction began in 2003[6] at the Northrop Grumman Newport News shipyard’s Dry Dock 12, the largest in the western hemisphere.[7] She was completed in 2009 at a cost of $6.2 billion[2] and her home port is Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia.
