U.S.S. New Orleans (LPD-18). Sorry to the crew if I got this wrong, but for sure it's a San Antonio-class Amphibious Transport Dock ship, designed to carry Marines and their equipment wherever needed. If you click on the photo, you'll notice there is quite a bit of rust. It's commonly seen on navy ships which have been working hard, traveling the world on deployment. Rest assured, once back at her home port, she will receive all the TLC required to remedy this.
The main reason I took notice of the ship passing by on it's way to Pearl Harbor, was the flight deck. It's the first time I could see V-22 Osprey tiltroter aircraft on a ship.
U.S.S. Boxer (LHD-4), a Wasp-class Amphibious Assault ship, just out of Pearl Harbor. This giant ship also carries the V-22 Osprey aircraft, as well as, Sikorsky CH-53 Sea Stallion helicopters.
Hope you're all having a good day.
