Early alert: Aircraft carrier John C. Stennis to sail by on Monday

FRIDAY NIGHT, 9:59 PM: For West Seattle water watchers who appreciate advance notice of significant sail-bys – the U.S. Navy sent word today that the carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) will be heading back out from Bremerton on Monday (March 23rd), for at-sea training exercises. No specific time yet.

MONDAY MORNING, 9:19 AM: The Stennis may already have gone by – we checked MarineTraffic.com a few minutes ago and there is an unspecified “Navy unit” already north of Elliott Bay. (9:45 note – yes, it’s passed, and we’re publishing reader photos.)

      I don’t believe they will announce it much in advance at all but we will be watching various sources on Monday – if anyone is likely to have info, it’ll be the Kitsap Sun, especially via Twitter http://twitter.com/kitsapsun – and if we hear anything via them or elsewhere, we will certainly have an update.

Sorry, comment time is over.
