USS Midway loading ordinance at US Naval Station Bangor, WA March 1958
Although the carrier is the center of a battle group, many other ships contribute to operations and
without them the carrier, as powerful as it is, would be hard pressed to complete its mission. Below
are some of the other ships and aircraft that operated with Midway during her shakedown off
California and on the 1958-1959 Far East Cruise.
