In response to back-to-back deadly collisions, Navy rethinks ship bridges to help prevent future accidents

Recommended Posts

Bridges are being revamped in response to these two deadly accidents that occurred in busy western Pacific waters two months apart in 2017 — accidents that Navy investigations later deemed avoidable. https://www.stripes.com/news/in-response-to-back-to-back-deadly-collisions-navy-rethinks-ship-bridges-to-help-prevent-future-accidents-1.573781
