YOKOSUKA NAVAL BASE, Japan — The USS John S. McCain floated again into the waters of its homeport on Tuesday, 15 months after a collision with a civilian oil tanker left 10 sailors dead and the destroyer severely damaged.

The 6,700-ton ship sat atop several feet of water Monday in its dry dock. By Tuesday, waters filled the dock and lifted the ship, which is named for the late senator from Arizona and his father and grandfather, both Navy admirals. https://www.stripes.com/news/uss-mccain-leaves-dry-dock-15-months-after-collision-that-killed-10-sailors-1.558170
