USS George H.W.

W. Bush, who was a naval aviator during World War II. Bush's call-sign is Avenger, after the TBM Avenger aircraft flown by then-Lieutenant George Bush in World War II. Construction began in 2003 at the Northrop Grumman Newport News shipyard's Dry Dock 12, the largest in the western hemisphere. She was completed in 2009 at a cost of $6.2 billion and her home port is Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia.

The ship is underway conducting sustainment exercises to maintain carrier readiness.
