Fitzerald arriving for repairs

PASCAGOULA, Miss. – The USS Fitzgerald is scheduled to arrive in South Mississippi on Friday morning. The guided missile destroyer arrives at about 10 a.m. Ingalls was selected by the U.S. Navy to repair the Fitzgerald, which was built at Bath Iron Works in Maine and launched in January 1994. In June the ship collided with a container ship off the coast of Japan. Seven crew members died and the destroyer was seriously damaged. Then when it was being loaded onto a transport ship for its trip to Pascagoula, the Fitzgerald was damaged again, adding two new punctures in the ship’s hull. (Source: Sun Herald, 01/18/18)
