    Yeah, that one took a pounding, but nothing a few hours in dry dock wouldnt buff right out.....

    On a more serious note; this one is the USS Lexington CV-2 and not the later USS Lexington CV-16.

    The latter was named USS Lexington in order to commemorate the USS Lexington CV-2, as it became known, that it had been scuttled.

    The USS Lexington CV-16 was originally to be named the 'Cabot,' but was otherwise known as 'The Blue Ghost.'
