The aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk has
arrived in Puget Sound on its final voyage before decommissioning
at Bremerton.
      A Naval Base Kitsap spokesman, Tom Danaher, says the carrier is
on schedule to tie up at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
      The 47-year-old ship is the Navy's last carrier powered by
diesel fuel.
      The Kitty Hawk was stationed the past ten years in Japan and
traveled this summer to San Diego.
      It's arriving with a crew of 1,600 that will be drawn down to
about 400 by October to prepare the ship for decommissioning early
next year.
