Eh, a Farmer is a MiG 19, the picture has a MiG 21 Fishbed..

Anyway, there are several floating Carrier museums, among them
USS Intrepid, Lexington, Hornet,

Intrepid has a Polish MiG 21 on display, but the other aircraft don't seem to be present.

Looking a bit worse for wear. She is an Essex class fast carrier with quite a history. Several of her sisters also survive as musems. The Hornet, Yorktown, and the Lexington I believe. If CT reads this he can confirm that the hornet is actually across the SF bay in Alameda.

OK Erwin,I'll speak in small words,cos its obvious you are dumb.....in an earlier 2 posts,links were given to details of this ship, where she is located,whats aboard and why. Visit those websites before you ask any more silly questions. Then change your avatar. I am familiar with his work,and it has no place on this site.
