Don't look for an aircraft carrier coming up the Cape Fear River anytime soon. The USS Kitty Hawk is undergoing its decommissioning process and a Wilmington group wants it here. The team has been working for the past three years to bring the Kitty Hawk to the port city to serve as a museum. But they have to put the effort on hold because the Navy said the carrier will have to stay in reserve in case of an emergency. Wilbur Jones, Kitty Hawk team secretary said, "We want it to come to North Carolina and its obvious place should be here at the port. We have the river and the facility. Now we will just have to be patience and wait on the Navy for the next couple of years." The Kitty Hawk will have to stay in reserve until 2015, for the next nuclear ship to be ready for battle.
