I was few lucky one to get to tag along to go board on USS Nimitz Carrier Strike Group (CSG) CVN68, one of the world’s largest aircraft carriers, the nuclear-powered USS Nimitz docked at Wesport, Port Klang for 4 days.
The Nimitz Carrier Strike Group, on a routine deployment in the region, has as its Commanding Officers Captain Paul O Monger. The Nimitz‘s 333-metre length is only surpassed by the USS Enterprise‘s 342 metres. The former, however, is the undisputed heavyweight displacing 102, 000 tonnes to the latter’s 93,500 tonnes.
