About the Event...

The only scale model contest in the world held aboard an aircraft carrier! Models vye for awards in more than 30 categories and 10 special awards, and admission to the contest gives a full pass to explore the USS Hornet, the ship whose air wing downed more Japanese planes than any other, and which served as the recovery ship for Apollo 11. The contest coincides with the ship's open cockpit day, allowing you to sit in an F-8 Crusader, an F11F-1 Tiger and others. This year's theme is "Apollo Plus 50 - and Beyond."
