Description

California (SSN 781) returned to Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) July 2 after completing successful sea trials. The submarine returned with a broom on its mast, symbolizing a "clean sweep," and an NNS flag to mark the first Virginia-class submarine sea trial since the return of the Newport News Shipbuilding name.
