US Navy Aircraft Carrier Due at the end of the Month.

I have heard a few rumblings that the US Navy is sending an Aircraft carrier to Halifax at the end of the month. The most Detailed claim i have heard is that it is the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower, and She will anchor in Anchorage 1.

Aircraft carriers never travel alone, and the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group Currently consists of the Ticonderoga Class Cruiser USS Normandy, and Destroyer Squadron 26; USS Stout, USS Mcfaul, USS Oscar Austin, USS Roosevelt, USS Mason, and USS Nitze. These are AEGIS and Arliegh Burke class Destroyers, though the entire squadron doesn’t always travel with the carrier.

I am unsure when the last carrier was in Halifax, but there hasen’t been one Since at least 2008*

*The Royal Navy sent the Arc Royal to the Fleet Review in 2010. Also present was the USS Wasp, which is an amphibious Assault ship, flightdeck not withstanding.

About Halifax Shipping News

Halifax Shipping News began in 2008 as a blog called The Armchair Captain. The idea behind it came when I would become curious about the comings and goings in the harbour, and research to find their source. I figured if I was wondering, others would be as well, and so I would blog about them. 5+ years later, here we are. This blog is written by Peter Ziobrowski. Peter is a Senior IT System Architect, and holds a BA in the History & Theory of Architecture,as well as diplomas in Computer System Technology and Information System Security. His personal site can be found at http://www.ziobrowski.net. Peter is available for media interviews on local Maritime issues. He also holds a large collection of photos of shipping subjects from Halifax suitable for publication. You can contact him directly via email at peter@halifaxshippingnews.ca.
