Museum opens early
abourd carrier Hornet
   ALAMEDA - The World War
II aircraft carrier Hornet
opened as a museum on 
Thursday, the only attraction of 
its kind on the West Coast.
   The museum is a "work in
progress" and there is still
much to be done, according to
Bob Rogers, spokesman for the
Hornet Foundation
   The gala opening celebration
is slated for Oct. 17, but
officials decided to allow early
tours because of public interest.
Worls War II fighter planes
and other exhibits weren't in
place. However, visitors could 
venture about the 899-foot
warship that was saved from
the scrap heap by volunteers in 
1995.
