Commissioned in 1943, she set more records than any other Essex Class carrier in the history of naval aviation. The Japanese referred to Lexington as a "ghost" ship for her tendency to reappear after reportedly being sunk. This, coupled with the ship's dark blue camouflage scheme, led the crew to refer to her as "The Blue Ghost"
