Recommended Posts

Aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN-68) is back in port after its propulsion plant experienced “a minor material deficiency,” according to the Navy.
“On Nov. 7, 2021, USS Nimitz (CVN 68) identified a minor material deficiency in the propulsion plant during normal operations while transiting in international waters off the western coast of the continental United States,” Cmdr. Zach Harrell, a spokesperson for Naval Air Forces, said in a statement. “The ship’s crew took action to address the deficiency and the ship returned to port. The deficiency posed no risk to the ship, the propulsion plant, the ship’s crew, or the environment.”
