Lexington CVA-16 was commissioned in 1943 and christened in honor of the original Lexington which was lost in 1942 at the Battle of the Coral Sea. The new Lady Lexset more combat records than any carrier in U.S. Naval history and today rests in Corpus Christi Bay as the U.S.S. Lexington Museum on the Bay a tribute and memorial to those who served defending America. Eleven of the ships 16 decks are included in tours of the Lex including the flight deck where 20 military aircraft are tethered ranging from a vintage N3N-3 Yellow Pearl bi-plane to a Blue Angels F-18 Hornet. The popular state-of-the-art 16 passenger Flight Simulator is located on the hanger deck as is the new World War II Virtual Battle Stations game center.
