Another One Bites the Dust*

US Navy: USS Saratoga (CV-60) to be scrapped.

Any non-nuclear aircraft carriers left at this point on active duty?

*when I attended US Navy boot camp in Orlando, Florida, in the fall of 1980, Queen's hit Another One Bites the Dust was a hit song. It was appropriate as our company was reduced in size from nearly 100 young men to around 80 at graduation, would have been even lower than that but we picked up some sailors from other companies who had been held back for one reason or another.
