USS Midway


My June 2004 USS Midway Collection

SDACM Grand Opening June 04 ~ 14, 2004


USS Midway



The pictures contained in this gallery are ones I took between June 04 ~ 14, 2004 in San Diego, California.

These pictures are of different views of Midway & show many close-ups in various parts of the ship.



A note about these pictures:

The ship is undergoing restoration in phases, with Phase One completed for the opening week. Most of these pictures were taken in the accessible parts of the ship. However, many others were taken in areas not accessible to the public. Only my status as a Safety & Security Team Volunteer during the opening week allowed me to photograph many of these areas. Even with this status, I still needed to obtain special permission from the Chief Engineer, Pete Clayton for access to certain areas. Much of the ship is still off-limits and has been chained/locked off. For those visiting the Midway, if a hatch or passageway is chained off, don't break the barrier! It is secured because it is not safe to go into and you will be escorted off the ship if caught.
