 Three years after the U.S. destroyer collided, 10 crew members were killed


The destroyer John McCain collided with an oil tanker in the Western Pacific Ocean in August 2017, the US Navy Times reported Tuesday, two months after another destroyer, Fitzgerald, also crashed, killing seven crew members. Now, prior to John McCains announcement of redeployment, Fitzgerald left her dock in Mississippi earlier this month for a naval base in San Diego.

John McCain received nearly two years of repairs at the 7th Fleet headquarters in Yokosuka, Japan, including upgrades to electronic information systems, antenna systems and parking devices, and was launched again last October, the report said.

Since then, the crew and the ship have carried out several months of basic stage training and verification, including 23 fields such as ship driving, navigation, damage control, etc.

Finally, the U.S. Navy announced on June 2 that John McCain could be redeployed to carry out the seventh fleets mission in the Western Pacific.
