American aircraft carrier in Port Klang

Update: The aircraft carrier will be here for 4 days in which Sailors will have the opportunity to volunteer their time at several local community service projects, including work in two children’s homes and a senior citizen’s home. - Source
Sometimes I wish Kuala Lumpur is situated by the coast where you can see boats, yachts or even ocean-liners gliding by, or at least located alongside a huge body of water such as a lake or a river where you can enjoy watching people sailing or watch fishing boats go by. Lovely!

Not sure whether the vessel is still at Port Klang but the American aircraft carrier, USS John C. Stennis, made a scheduled port call yesterday. The name doesn't ring a bell?

This same aircraft carrier was used in movies including Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, Executive Decision and others. It also responded to disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Indonesia.

    wonderful ships..i was aboard the USS Carl Vinson and it was amazing to be on the bridge during their last visit..hoping for Uss George Washington, Stenis and also the USS Bunker Hill...

    I wonder if Oklahoma subs are allowed to be here..

  3. Bananaz, if I remember correctly, "Executive Decision" is a movie banned from the cinemas in Malaysia. I watched it on DVD.

    Hi Anonymous, thanks for stopping by and leaving an interesting comment. Yeah, unfortunately USS Stenis was not open to the public on this visit.

    Are Oklahoma subs still plying the waters? I thought they are docked on dry land now.
