The US aircraft carrier Kitty Hawk and its two support ships arrived in Hong Kong Friday for a port call.
This is the second visit in a week by a United States Navy aircraft carrier, following the arrival of USS Constellation and six other US warships.
The Kitty Hawk and its two escorts USS Curtis Wilbur and USS O'Brien will stay in Hong Kong for a few days. The port call is a routine visit to provide an opportunity for rest and relaxation ashore for the ship's crews.
All three ships have a total crew member of about 6,000.
The Kitty Hawk, commissioned in 1961, is the oldest active ship in the United States Navy.
