The aircraft carrier Harry S. Truman left Norfolk Naval Shipyard on Friday after several months of maintenance, the Navy said.

Work completed on Truman included modernization of the propulsion plant, main engine and attached lube oil pump repairs, a Navy news release said. Inspections of the catapult launch system were also done.

Truman is the Navy’s ninth nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, the release said. The ship was launched in 1996 and delivered to the Navy two years later.
