Last week we gave you a heads-up that the Navy trimaran USS Oakland was due to sail under the Golden Gate Bridge on Wednesday, April 14. Did you see it come in? Kimberly Kaleo did. She was alongside and took a bunch of great photos, which she sent to us.
“I provided the Oakland PD escort as it entered our territory,” Kimberly wrote.
USS Oakland is an Independence-class littoral combat ship (LCS — a set of two classes of relatively small surface vessels designed for operations near shore by the United States Navy) and is the third ship to be named for the City of Oakland. She was built in Mobile, Alabama, and delivered to the Navy on June 26, 2020. She will soon move to her home port in San Diego.
Thanks for Kimberly for sending the photos!
