Description: The CV 67 USS John F. Kennedy conventionally-powered attack aircraft carrier entered service on September 7, 1968. Despite the ship remains fully mission capable, it has been assigned to the US Navy Reserve for naval force training purposes and peacetime support operations. Since 1997, the ship is anchored at Mayport, Florida. The crew of 5,597-man is divided according to 3,117 ship's crew and 2,480 air wing.

The USS Kennedy carries up to 85 combat aircraft such as fixed-wing F-14s, F/A-18s, E-2C Hawkeyes and S-3 Vikings and rotary-wing SH-60Bs. Ship's defense system also includes two Sea Sparrow air-to-surface missile launchers and three CIWS Mk-15 Phalanx guns. The Kennedy was involved in military operations against Libya (mid-1980s) and Iraq (1991).

Following replacement of CVN 65 in 2014 by the lead ship of CVN 21 class (CVN 78), the CV 67 will be replaced by the second CVN 21 class aircraft carrier (CVN 79) by 2018.
