Ahh, the USS Constellation back in 2000.

The American super aircraft carrier was cruising the chilly bay that hugs San Francisco and Oakland for Fleet Week, and while doing so did a little dance while going under the famous Golden Gate Bridge (that connects the city of SF with the county of Marin) as only it can.

It launched fighter jets off its deck while automobiles rumbled over the rusty red 4,200-foot manmade crossing above.

This from Foxtrot Alpha:

San Francisco has one of the richest naval histories of any city in America. Aircraft carriers especially have deep roots in the Bay Area. Carriers were fixtures at Naval Base Alameda for many decades.

During the later half the of the Cold War, both conventional and nuclear aircraft carriers were based there, including the Iconic USS Enterprise and USS Ranger. The base closed in 1997 as the U.S. continued to consolidate its forces as part of the so-called “peace dividend.” Today the USS Hornet, which has been turned into a museum ship, stands as a testament to the past.
