Midway Magic
created by

"Midway Magic," is a term coined while the ship was deployed in Japan. It comes from the Japanese word "Majutsue," meaning that no matter what happens, we are ready. Sailing in every ocean of the world, from 1945 to 1992, more than 200,000 sailors served on the Midway.
The USS Midway (CVB-41) was the largest warship in the world for the first decade of its service.
The Midway sailed to San Diego where she was decommissioned as the longest-serving carrier in U.S. Navy history on April 11, 1992. Stricken from the Navy List on March 17, 1997 she was taken to the Navy Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility in Bremerton, Wash. where she was put on hold. On January 5, 2004, the carrier returned to San Diego, and on January 10, 2004, was moved to her final resting place where the Magic will once again come alive, as the Midway continues to serve her country as a major museum devoted to naval aviation.
