    Enterprise's crew left the ship after her last homecoming in 2012, and they were then dispersed to new drafts across the fleet. Other carriers mainly, They did not march down one gangplank from the Big E straight onto the Ford, although inevitably some will have ended up on the Ford.

    By the same token the crews of the British carriers were kept busy in between Ark Royal paying off in 2010 and Illustrious paying off in 2014, mostly by being posted aboard USN Carriers and the French CdG, so that their skill were maintained in the interregnum.

    Still the two date still suspiciously close to each other.

    Can be there any other reason to not to keep big gap between two ship?
    Like officer designation, carrier path, funding needs, (apart from general political reason) ?

    Can you explain why the question " is the Enterprise decommissioning has anything to do with the Ford early commissioning" is nonsense ?

    And you think that the objective analysis of the above will create the same emotionally heated discussion like the post about the smartphone sales ? ( not yours, but mine : P )
