The hull number on the aircraft carrier is not visible, although I'm sure someone with close knowledge of the Navy could identify it. The battleship is the USS Missouri (BB-63). The red-and-white striped tower in the background was an air traffic control tower on Ford Island, active during World War II. The white structure is, of course, the USS Arizona Memorial (BB-39).
