Naval Air Station North Island, Calif. (Jan. 8, 2004) -- A retired E-2 Hawkeye is hoisted aboard the decomissioned aircraft carrier Midway at Naval Air Station North Island, Calif. Midway is moored temporarily at the naval station to take-on restored historical aircraft. The historic ship will be relocated and homeported across the bay in San Diego, as the centerpiece for America's largest museum devoted to carriers and naval aviation. When launched on September 10, 1945 as USS Midway (CVB 41) she was the largest carrier ever put to sea. U.S Navy photo by Geoffrey Patrick.  (RELEASED)
