5:40 PM: Just got a tip that a Bremerton-bound aircraft carrier is coming into view. The Kitsap Sun reports it’s the USS Theodore Roosevelt. More to come – we’re headed downhill to see.

(WSB photo – those are cars on deck, belonging to the relocating sailors and families)

6:21 PM: The carrier’s turning into Rich Passage.

7:02 PM: Adding a photo, as seen from Constellation Park. The Sun’s Josh Farley reports the carrier has shifted homeports from San Diego to Bremerton for an extensive overhaul at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard.

      For the families who are moving here from San Diego. (See the aerial in this TV coverage as it left there.)

    Not the first time, nor the last that a carrier coming to(or leaving) Bremerton has brought crews cars.

    FINALLY, the flying cars the industry’s been promising us for 60+ years are here.

Sorry, comment time is over.
