PORTSMOUTH, Va. (April 25, 2007) - As line handlers keep USS George Washington (CVN 73) centered in the dry dock, tugboats assist the carrier move from dry dock to wet slip. The Norfolk-based Nimitz-class aircraft carrier is currently undergoing Planned Incremental Availability and Docking (PIA+D). The availability will prepare George Washington to relieve USS Kitty Hawk (CV 63) as the fleet's forward deployed carrier in 2008. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Peter D.
