Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier Profile Drawing Prints
by George Bieda

Construction of the first 3 Nimitz Class aircraft carriers was originally authorized by then-Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara during the Vietnam War.  The latest in the class to enter active service was the USS Ronald Reagan (hull number CVN 76), which was commissioned on 12 July 2003, nearly 3 decades after completion of the lead ship, the USS Nimitz.  The USS George H.W. Bush CVN 77, the last ship in this class,  is nearing completion, and is scheduled for commissioning in November 2008.

Profile drawings of all 10 ships in the Nimitz Class are available.  With incredible detail, George captures the amazing size and stature of each enormous flat-top, complete with aircraft on deck,  the ship's patch, and Builder's plaque.  Click on the thumbnail to view a larger image, then click your browser's BACK button to return here.  Please be sure to fill in the "Years served aboard:" info when ordering.  With that information, George will draw in the Airwing, weapons, and radars appropriate for that time period. Be sure to select your desired print size and framing options when ordering!

"Deck Departure" and the companion print "Last Launch" by Robert Bailey

USS Nimitz is the lead ship in this class of nuclear powered aircraft carriers operated by the US Navy.  For over 30 years, NIMITZ has affectively projected American military power around the globe.  In this pair of exciting prints, taken from an original painting and drawing, Robert Bailey has captured the high activity level associated with aircraft launches from this majestic lady.  "Deck Departure" depicts the launch of LT COL "Hamster" Hobson's F/A 18 Hornet from NIMITZ's #3 cat, while "Last Launch" shows the aicrcraft of Carrier Air Wing  11 departing NIMITZ prior to her arrival at San Diego in late June 2008.  Both prints in this very limited edition are signed by the artist.  In addition, Deck Departure is co-signed by five high-echelon officers from USS Nimitz at the time the print was created.

     Captain Michael C. Manazir, Commanding Officer
     Captain Thomas M. Downing, Commander Air Group (CAG)
     Captain Bret Batchelder, Deputy Commander Air Group (DCAG)
     Commander Chris Bolt, Executive Officer
     Commander Chip Boogerd, Carrier Air Wing 11 Ops Officer

Your purchase will include one copy of "Deck Departure," (image area 17" X 27" including signature panel),  one copy of "Last Launch" (image area 20" X 16"), a bio card showing photos and biographies of the signatories, and a Certificate of Authenticity.  A great collectible for both ship and aircraft enthusiasts!

We had the foresight to get our order in early for this terrific duo, so we are pleased to be able to offer Artist's Proofs #1 and #2, from a total of only 15 available. Once these are gone, you will only find them on the secondary market, at higher prices.  So order early to be sure you get a set!
