Official info--Weighing in at 97,000 tonnes, USS HW Bush carries over 70 aircraft and 6,000 plus sailors and aircrew. The warship has been involved with Exercise "Saxon Warrior", one of the largest war games hosted by the Royal Navy in recent years in UK, along-side other NATO forces including the RAF and British Army.
Due to her size she is too large to enter Portsmouth Harbour and will instead be laying anchor off Stokes Bay in the Solent until next Tuesday morning.
There is an exclusion zone in force of 250 metres whilst the vessel is at anchor with further information issued in a notice to mariners from Queen's Harbour Master, Portsmouth:
Also interesting there is a Solent charity swim this Sunday morning(weather permitting) from Stokes Bay to Ryde- RIBs as safety boats, that will be interesting
