|USS Yorktown (CV-10) The aircraft carrier and flagship of the KantaiCon fleet! The bulk of the convention will be held inside and on top of the Yorktown. In addition to our convention, she also holds an extensive collection of aircraft ranging from WW2 era through to the modern day. You can get into the cockpit of some of the aircraft.
