The USS Yorktown CV-10 was one of 24 Essex class aircraft carriers built during WWII & served with the U.S. Navy.

Initially she was to be named Bonhomme Richard, but when under construction this name was changed to commemorate the loss of USS Yorktown CV-5 during the Battle of Midway in June 1942. USS Yorktown was commissioned in April 1943 & would participate in many actions in the Pacific Theater of Operations, earning 11 battle stars.

After WWII USS Yorktown was modernised in 1953 as an attack carrier & served with distinction during the Korean War.

She was yet again modernised & would become an antisubmarine carrier, serving in the Pacific for many years & would be involved in the Vietnam War.

Later in her career she would be used as a recovery ship for the Apollo 8 space mission. USS Yorktown was finally decommissioned in 1970 & in 1975 became a museum ship in South Carolina.
