'Ghost' causes a stir aboard USS Lexington

Posted on Saturday, 25 March, 2017 | Comment icon 8 comments

Is there something otherworldy lurking the ship's corridors ? Image Credit:
Visitors to a popular attraction in Corpus Christi, Texas came across something they did not expect.
The USS Lexington, which was built during World War II, was turned in to a museum after being decommissioned in 1991 and has remained a popular tourist attraction ever since.

The vessel has long been associated with reports of paranormal phenomena, so much so in fact that it has been featured on several TV shows including 'Ghost Hunters' and 'Ghost Lab'.

Now new video footage has emerged showing what appears to be a door aboard the ship being heavily slammed shut by an unseen force. The recording was made by a family who had been visiting the vessel when the incident occurred.

A local news report featuring the footage they captured can be viewed below.

May be, may be. Or a practical joke played by someone of service personnel who, may be unintentionally, happened to be behind the door. The news guy said that the door leads to some offices. Since the tours are commercial, all the crew would surely support the claim, as it can surely bring more visitors. Wherever money rules, no truth can be found, and money rules everywhere.

Same wind. I was highly disappointed in the video.

Could be 'someone of solid form' opening or closing another door in the connecting offices that caused a pressure difference. Or it could be a ghost/alien/Bigfoot.

That steel door would not move unless there was a gale blowing through, which I cannot imagine inside the ship, even outside steel doors keep open in wind and have to be closed manually. To me this is a U.M

It seems like the ship is likely to be haunted but this video was not terribly compelling.

In 2010, I displayedmy Tuskegee Airmen exhibition for the full month of February on the USS Lexington. The folks of the USS Lexington were gracious enough to move my exhibitto the entrance near the ticket booths which was originally located near the mess area deep inside the ship. I have to say that I have never seen anything ghostly during that time-frame.

Well, I'd like to know who did the whistling. Before the door slams shut, you can hear someone whistling.So was that the ghost or someone in this family making the sound? The door well.It leads to offices. Maybe a human was down there and suddenly realized they forgot to close the doorand that's what we see.
