USS Nassau Aircraft Carrier

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). 

The main photo was taken in Palma de Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: June 25th, 2008. The time was 13:07:53. The bottom photo is borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of United States Navy. Thank you.

  1. We are students of 4ESO of the Ramon Llull high school, and we use this blog to learn english.
    We think that the USS Navy is spying the Mediterranean sea because they never visit our coast.
    Maybe, the spanish officer invite them to Spain, who known? The EEUU navy, probably, is in a peace mission to have relations between European Union and United States navy and see the potencial of the European Army.
    We like a lot this post and this blog. In the next English lesson we will learn more.
