Sunday Times apology for calling aircraft carrier a destroyer

An apology in today’s Sunday Times:

A caption last week incorrectly identified the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson as a “destroyer”.

Apologies to all those who were deceived 🙂 Somebody was obviously angry enough about this to make a formal complaint. Dunno why I thought this was funny, but it made me laugh.

Not – I repeat, not – a destroyer, but the USS Carl Vinson.

More to the point, who was Carl Vinson?
