7:15 AM: About six weeks after its most-recent departure on a training mission, the aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) is on its way back to Bremerton. A texter just sent word that it’s visible passing south Bainbridge Island right now.
8:26 AM: Thanks to Jim Borrow for the photo! Added above. P.S. After 13 years homeported in Bremerton, the Stennis is scheduled to move to Norfolk soon, per this report from shortly after its July departure; the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70), meantime, will be moving here.
