↑USS United States (CVA-58). Artist's conception by Bruno Figallo, October 1948, showing the ship's approximate planned configuration as of that time. Many details, among them the location of smoke stacks, elevators and the retractable bridge, were then still not finally decided. This carrier was laid down at Newport News, Virginia, on 18 April 1949 and cancelled by the Secretary of Defense a few days later. Official U.S. Navy Photograph, now in the collections of the National Archives.
