USS Nassau was anchored in the Bay of Palma de Mallorca yesterday.
The US navy ship is classified as an amphibious assault ship. She is visiting Mallorca with a total of 2,782 Navy and Marine Corps personnel, plus 82 officers.
The Nassau is an aircraft carrier which comes with six Harrier attack planes, plus 29 helicopters of the Sea Knight, the Super Cobra, the Huey and the Sea Stallion types. I hope I am not giving away any military secrets, here.
She was deployed in February 2008 for a six month Mediterranean cruise and, apparently, is now on her voyage home, back to Norfolk, Virginia (USA).
