CVA-64 "USS Constellation" was the second carrier in the Kitty Hawk Class. Four years building, she was commissioned October 27, 1961. Upon delivery to the fleet, she was outfitted with the Mk-10 Terrier Standard Missile Launcher system providing air defense for the ship and it's battle group during the Vietnam conflict. On June 30, 1975 the ship was reclassified as a "Multi-Purpose Aircraft Carrier" (CV-64) following modifications to the flight deck and equipment which enabled the ship to deploy with S-3A Viking anti-submarine aircraft and F-14 Tomcat fighters. In 1982, CV-64 returned to the yards for major modernization. When the ship came out in 1984 she was able to carry the Navy's newest strike fighter - the F/A-18 Hornet. Additionally, her Mk-10 launchers (earlier modified to launch Talos and Tarter missiles) were removed and replaced with the Mk-29 NATO Sea Sparrow launchers.

On November 2nd, 2002, "USS Constellation" stood out on her last and final cruise - this time in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. She arrived in the Arabian Gulf December 17th and remained on station for four months. "Connie" (as the ship was affectionately called) was the first to launch air strikes in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and subsequently flew more than 1,500 sorties, dropping more than 1.7 million pounds of ordinance on strategic military targets. In addition, Connie produced, packaged and dropped about 600 million leaflets over Iraq. On April 17, 2003 she began her return to San Diego. On June 1, 2003 an S-3B from VS-38 became the last aircraft in history to be launched off  her deck.

On her final deployment Constellation carried 9 squadrons:
VF-2 Bounty Hunters: 10 F-14D Tomcat,
VFA-137 Kestrels: 12 F/A-18C Hornet,
VFA-151 Vigilantes: 12 F/A-18C Hornet,
VMFA-323 Death Rattlers:   2 F/A-18C Hornet,
VAW-116 Sun Kings:   4 E-2C Hawkeye,
VAQ-131 Lancers:   4 EA-6B Prowler,
VS-38 Red Griffins:   8 S-3B Viking,
VRC-30 Providers:   2 C-2A Greyhound,
HS-2 Golden Falcons:   2 Seahawk + 6 Pave Hawk

Since her commissioning, nearly 120,000 sailors and marines have served aboard the ship, and the arresting gear has amassed an impressive 436,000 'traps', or landings. After nearly 42 years of service, "USS Constellation" was decommissioned on August 7, 2003, and struck from the Navy List on December 2, 2003. Connie is now slated to be sunk for an artificial reef.
