NEWPORT NEWS, VA. — The Enterprise is leaving Naval Station Norfolk for the last time.

The inactivated nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is being taken to Newport News Shipbuilding, where the nuclear fuel aboard the ship will be removed. It is the same shipyard where the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier was built.

The Enterprise was taken out of service in December after 51 years of service.
