Misaligned propeller shaft delays collision-damaged USS McCain’s return to sea, Navy says

Recommended Posts

TOKYO — The USS John S. McCain will be out of service longer than anticipated due to problems discovered during testing after the guided-missile destroyer moved out of dry dock in November, according to a report Thursday in Defense News.

The destroyer — assigned to the 7th Fleet at Yokosuka Naval Base, Japan — underwent two years’ worth of repairs following its collision in August 2017 with a commercial tanker near Singapore. A berthing area on the warship was impacted, leaving 10 sailors dead. https://www.stripes.com/news/pacific/misaligned-propeller-shaft-delays-collision-damaged-uss-mccain-s-return-to-sea-navy-says-1.591013
