The aircraft carrier USS Intrepid participated in World War II's Pacific Campaign. Launched in 1943, this amazing aircraft survived five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. Now docked in the Hudson River, this 900-foot behemoth affords visitors a glimpse at one of the Navy's most successful and durable carriers. The decks where men fought and died are open to the public, making this museum more than your standard exhibit-filled gallery. Also included are tours of the destroyer USS Edson, submarine USS Growler and an aircraft exhibit that includes a Lockheed A-12 Blackbird, the world's fastest plane. Also make sure to view the British Airways Concorde. This was the plane that accomplished the fasted Atlantic Ocean crossing by any Concorde in 1996: only 2 hours, 52 minutes and 59 seconds.
