NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Virginia is now home to another aircraft carrier.
USS Abraham Lincoln is now at its new homeport in Norfolk, Va., on Tuesday.
The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier left its previous homeport of Everett, Wash., in December on an eight-month deployment.
The Lincoln is changing ports for a four-year refueling complex overhaul. During that period, the Lincoln's nuclear reactors will be refueled, the ship's combat and communication systems will be upgraded, and the hull, mechanical and electrical systems will be overhauled.
The Lincoln's arrival means Virginia will temporarily be home to six of the Navy's 11 aircraft carriers. The Norfolk-based USS Enterprise will be deactivated after it completes its final deployment this fall.
