USS Lexington (CV-16)

USS Lexington sitting at dock in Corpus Christi Texas
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"
