American aircraft carrier in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" in Port Klang

Update: It will be in Port Klang for 4 days.

Not many of us get to see an aircraft carrier. If you are interested and lucky, you might still get to see the American aircraft carrier, USS John C. Stennis, where it made a schedule port call at Port Klang yesterday with 5,000 sailors and dozens of fighter jets on board. The Star didn't say how long it will be here though.

The ship is better known for its cameo appearance in several movies although it has had served in operations in Afghanistan and other hotspots, and responded to disasters including Hurricane Katrina and the tsunami in Indonesia.

Besides Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, in which the carrier was seen in the film's final battle in Egypt, the 15-year-old ship had also appeared in the movies Executive Decision and The Sum of All Fears, as well as in an episode of television series NCIS.
