About the U.S. Bon Homme Richard:
This carrier saw combat in the final raids against Japan, but was recalled to active duty with the outbreak of the Korean War. It had a couple of combat tours in the Korean War before undergoing conversion work in 1953 to allow operations of high-performance jet aircraft. This replica shows the USS Bon Homme Richard as she appeared during the Korean War. Her aircraft launched strikes against North Korean targets such as the heavy bombing of the Sui-ho hydroelectric dam in June 1952, and on the city of Pyongyang.
