The 2018 Rock Island auction is on March 8.
This year’s auction will feature the latest in high-end military equipment.
This is the first year the auction will be held in conjunction with the USS Indianapolis Memorial Naval Air Station.
The sale is expected to raise more than $300 million.
This is not the first time the Rock Island Naval Air Museum has held an auction.
In 2015, the museum sold off several military aircraft from the USS Abraham Lincoln.
The auction also sold off military aircraft and parts from the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The 2018 auction will focus on the USS Dwight Eisenhower, a WWII-era aircraft carrier that served as the headquarters of the U.S. Pacific Fleet from 1945 to 1952.
The aircraft carrier was part of the USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group.
The USS Dwight, which is named for the former commander of the Nimich aircraft carrier, was built by General Dynamics Aviation.
The aircraft carrier served from 1942 to 1951.
It was decommissioned in 1954 and remains in the National Museum of Naval Aviation in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
In 2018, the auction was announced as a finalist for the National Naval Aviation Museum’s National Maritime Museum Award.
The winner will receive a plaque with a plaque of a retired crewmember of the Dwight, a plaque commemorating the ship’s original aircraft carrier design and a plaque to honor the service of the men who built and flew the aircraft carrier.
The plaque will be unveiled in 2019.
It is not known if the Dwight will be included in the 2019 auction.
