What aircraft carrier is docked at Pier 80 in San Francisco?

Here it is in Google Maps: https://www.google.com/maps?q=205-101+26th+St,+San+Francisco,+CA+94124&ll=37.752491,-122.377377&spn=0.002048,0.002822&sll=37.75251768175184,-122.3775379644239&sspn=0.0016673046848882018,0.003859317457642925&t=h&dg=opt&hnear=101+26th+St,+San+Francisco,+California+94124&z=19 (https://www.google.com/maps?q=205-101+26th+St,+San+Francisco,+CA+94124&ll=37.752491,-122.377377&spn=0.002048,0.002822&sll=37.75251768175184,-122.3775379644239&sspn=0.0016673046848882018,0.003859317457642925&t=h&dg=opt&hnear=101+26th+St,+San+Francisco,+California+94124&z=19)

Here it is in Bing Maps (better images): http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=q8rtqk4t1qpt&lvl=18.79&dir=180.71&sty=b&form=LMLTCC (http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&cp=q8rtqk4t1qpt&lvl=18.79&dir=180.71&sty=b&form=LMLTCC)

The attached picture is from Bing Maps birds eye view, and was taken in 2012.  I believe the aircraft carrier is still there.

Hi.
This is an Iowa Jima class LPH  Landing ship helicopter.
An Amphious assault ship. For transporting US Marines.
Most of these are out of service replaved by the WASp class And Tarawa Class ships.

This one I think is USS Tripoli (LPH-10)  Now used as a trials ship for research in the US ballistic missile programme.

slight typo:  Iwo Jima class not Iowa class.
