Kitty Hawk to Wilmington

This ship belongs in (and some might say to) North Carolina. If for no other reason, than it's name alone (and all the history that it denotes) should be enough of a reason to bring the boat home. As far as bringing it to Wilmington, it should bring a boost to tourism fro the area. How many people come to this area just to see the battleship? How many more would be become with more than one piece of history here? Look at the Intrepid museum in NYC. How many people visit it a year? Then there's Charleston, SC with the military exhibit it has with a carrier and a submarine. How many people travel there to see two pieces of history? I think it would be beneficial to our area to have more histiry available for people to see.
