USS Sweppis…

Look at the Sweppis license plate… CVN-66. So, this is the successor of the USS Enterprise! Wikipedia says:

“USS Enterprise (CVN-65), formerly CVA(N)-65, is a decommissioned[11] United States Navy aircraft carrier. She was the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and the eighth United States naval vessel to bear the name. Like her predecessor of World War II fame, she is nicknamed “Big E”. At 1,123 ft (342 m),[5][6] she is the longest naval vessel ever built. Her 93,284-long-ton (94,781 tonnes)[4] displacement ranked her as the 12th-heaviest supercarrier, after the 10 carriers of the Nimitz class and the USS Gerald R. Ford. Enterprise had a crew of some 4,600 service members.”

Nice trivia and nice coincident… how convenient, almost too convenient :). Thanks Patu for the hint…
