Ghost photographed on haunted WWII ship?

A remarkable photo taken by a man visiting a notoriously haunted WWII aircraft carrier seemingly shows one of the ship's resident ghosts. Will Smith ventured to the USS Lexington, which now serves as a museum in Corpus Christi, after hearing tales of the ship from his late father, who once served aboard the vessel. And although he wasn't visiting the site in the hopes of finding a ghost, it appears that a spirit may have found him.

When looking at his pictures from the visit, Smith was stunned to see an odd anomaly on the glass of one display case that bears an uncanny resemblance to the outline of a person. Talking to a local TV station, he insists that there was no one else in the room who could account for the strange shape which some might suspect was a reflection. Putting to rest the possibility that the eerie figure could have been him, he explained that "I’m 5' 3" and 280 pounds. That's definitely not me."

While that may not be enough to satisfy skeptics who will likely argue that Smith is just mistaken about being alone in the room, a tour guide on the ship noted that the vessel boasts a long history of paranormal activity. There's even a resident ghost on the ship that has been seen so often that he's been given the name 'Charlie.' For his part, Smith wondered if perhaps his experience was a message meant just for him and mused "seeing that my dad just passed away and served on the Lexington, that would be pretty awesome if that was him."


By George Noory / Coast to Coast AM Host

George Noory, host of the nationally syndicated program, Coast to Coast AM, says if he weren’t a national radio talk show host he’d be in politics. Heard by millions of listeners, Coast To Coast AM airs on approximately 564 stations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Guam.

While hosting The Nighthawk, a wildly successful, late-night program on KTRS in St. Louis, Noory was recruited by Premiere Radio Networks to guest host on Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell.  He became the permanent host of the phenomenally successful over-night program on January 1, 2003, following Bell’s retirement.  Since then, Noory’s audience has continued to grow.

Noory captivates program listeners with his discussions of paranormal phenomena, time travel, alien abductions, conspiracies and all things curious and unexplained. He is driven, he has said, by the desire to solve the great mysteries of our time. From his first days as a radio broadcaster he says, “I’ve wanted to cover stories that the mainstream media never touch—the unusual, the paranormal and things like that. I learned that broadcast was the best business for exploring these issues, and I’ve been doing it for 33 years.”
