New Orleans Meet New Orleans

Monday, October 23, 2006
The amphibious transport dock ship New Orleans (LPD 18) sailed away from Northrop Grumman Corporation's New Orleans facility early Monday morning for her builder's sea trial. The 684-ft. ship sailed down the Mississippi River past the New Orleans skyline en route to the Gulf of Mexico where she will undergo testing of all the ship's systems while at sea. Following sea trial, shipbuilders will continue to work final details in preparation for the U.S. Navy's Board of Inspection and Survey's acceptance sea trial scheduled later this year. The ship is scheduled to be delivered in early 2007.
