  • Description

    Ships of the world's first nuclear task force, which is training in the Mediterranean Sea, will embark on OPERATION SEA ORBIT, an around the world cruise scheduled to begin 31 July. The cruise begins when the ships enter the Straits of Gibralter. The circumnavigation will be made in an easterly direction.

    The ships making the trip will be the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Enterprise, the guided missile cruiser U.S.S. Long Beach and the frigate U.S.S. Bainbridge. The force is commanded by Rear Admiral Bernard M. Strean. All three vessels are nuclear powered.

    The three ships have been operating together in the Mediterranean as part of the United State Sixth Fleet since 13 May. They are scheduled to return to their home part of the eastern coast of the United States early in October at the end of their cruise.
