Visit the haunted WWII ship “The Blue Ghost” in Corpus Christi
The USS Lexington has a long history of serving our great nation. It was one of the main aircraft carriers of WWII. It has been the target of suicide bombers and torpedo attacks on several occasions.
It was given the nickname “The Blue Ghost” because Tokyo Rose broadcasters consistently claimed that the Lexington had been destroyed. Of course, this was not true, which prompted the Japanese to call it a ghost ship as it always returned to combat according to backpackerverse.com.
It was decommissioned in 1991 and is found in Corpus Christi as a popular tourist attraction. Many stories have emerged from tourists and former crew members over the years of paranormal activity aboard the ship.
One of those stories is that of a ghost named Charlie who resides in one of the engine rooms. Many tourists completed the wonderful tour guide while in Engine Room # 2 dressed in full navy uniforms. But there are no tour guides as this is a self-guided tour through the ship.
Another story came from a woman who claims that while she was on the bridge she saw a terrifying ghost with no eyes and no scars on her face that pounced on her. It was also reported that food was smelled as you walked through the kitchen or noises and screams were heard as you walked through an area where soldiers had died.
Numerous paranormal teams investigated the ship and found various evidence of some sort of presence on board the ship. A group has caught what they believe to be a sailor walking through a door.
We get a good story from one of the volunteers during this episode of the Russell Rush Haunted Tour. Once the story is explained, it gets a little out of date.
You can search Youtube and find plenty of other videos of paranormal hunters visiting the Lexington to hopefully get evidence of activity.
Ghost or not, visit the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi. You will get a great story of a ship that saw a lot of action during WWII.
