Tour of the USS Stennis

Some 30 members of the Singapore Press Club toured the USS Stennis on Wednesday April 3, as the aircraft carrier berthed at Changi Naval Base for a few days, en route from the Arabian Gulf to its home port in Washington State, US. The Stennis is the size of four football fields, and carries 6,500 crew and airmen at maximum capacity, and 70-plus aircraft. Press club members were the guests of the US Embassy in Singapore, which organized the tour.
