Newport News, Va. (Nov. 28, 2006) - Workers from the Northrop Grumman Newport News Shipyard prepare to install the starboard anchor chain aboard the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). The installation of the anchors is one of the many major projects the ship will go through during the aircraft carrier's Refueling Complex Overhaul (RCOH). The RCOH is an extensive yard period that all Nimitz-class aircraft carriers go through near the mid-point of their 50-year life cycle.
