Hi All,

The USS Albuqerque (SSN706) visited Portsmouth in the late 80's does anybody know the date she visited please? As she is a LA Class Sub, trying to find any information is rather difficult.
As i'm a new member i hope i've posted this in the correct place.

Cheers

Have a look on here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Albuquerque_(SSN-706)

She vistied ports in Scotland & England during the deployment from 19th May to 14th September 1986.
I'm sure someone else on this site can come up with a more exact date or able to point you in the right direction.
Have you tired the Harbour? They may have a website with all the ships that has visited Portsmouth with the date attached.

Thanks for the info Hawkeye, I have tried Harbour movements and Evening News shipping movements for the period, with no luck. I remember her visit to Portsmouth was around 1988-90 as this was the time i was working on Southsea sea front.

I've already tried that John, the History goes to early 1987 and then resumes late 90's i believe she visited ports in Scotland and England in 1986, but my sigting was 1989 or 1990, she was assigned to the John F. Kennedy battle group in 1992 as part of the sixth fleet.

For Neil T

Came across this thread by chance; anyway the answer is that Alburquerque visted Pompey three times in the late eighties as follows:

25 to 27 March 1985
21 to 25 July 1986
and 3 to 8 February 1989

Better late than never!!

Many thanks Richmack for this information, being the type of vessel she is it's very difficult to find movements.
Thanks again,(Applause)
