USS Harry S. Truman returns from sea trials

The USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) underwent 10 months of upgrades. On Friday it headed out to sea to conduct sea trials.

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- The USS Harry S. Truman is returned to its homeport at Norfolk Naval Station on Tuesday, after completing several days of sea trials. 

The Truman (CVN 75) left the Norfolk Naval Shipyard on July 25, a day earlier than scheduled.

The Truman, which was commissioned into service in 1998, was getting system repairs and upgrades in the shipyard for about 10 months.

Truman's return comes just two days after Navy's newest aircraft carrier, USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN 78) was commissioned.
