Pilot Tour of the USS Hornet

Sat May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us for an adventurous afternoon as we take a pilot tour of the historic U.S.S. Hornet, and Essex-class aircraft carrier built for the United States Navy (USN) now on display as a museum in Alameda. The Hornet took part in the Mariana and Palau Islands campaigns of World War II, most notably the Battle of the Philippine Sea. Famously, the Hornet was the ship that recovered the Apollo 11 astronauts returning from the moon landing.

Pilots from SCFC plan to meet at the pier in Alameda at Noon on May 25th for a 2-hour tour with our own private docent. You can plan to drive to the pier at the Hornet or fly into Hayward and get transportation over to the pier.

Cost $15 approximately. Depends on how many register as the docent charge is in addition to the group rate.

Parking is free. Lunch is available at concession stands on the pier for an additional cost.
