#USSSampson – seen here in a file photo – is underway with its two embarked MH-60R Sea Hawk helicopters to support relief from the Nov. 14 earthquake in New Zealand.
Just days ago, #DDG102 had conducted a passing exercise with Her Majesty's New Zealand Ship (HMNZS) Endeavour, a Royal New Zealand Navy fleet replenishment oiler.
Sampson was transiting the Western Pacific en route to Auckland, New Zealand, to participate in the Royal New Zealand Navy's International Naval Review commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Royal New Zealand Navy. Sampson's visit to New Zealand will be the first in 30 years for a U.S. Navy ship.
Also, A P-3C Orion assigned to Patrol Squadron (VP) 47 was participating in Exercise Mahi Tangaroa as part of the New Zealand International Naval Review when the earthquake struck and has been tasked with assessing the area surrounding Kaikoura. The P-3C was operating from Royal New Zealand Air Force Base Auckland in Whenuapai.
VP-47 is a U.S. Navy squadron based out of Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe Bay. The P-3C Orion is a four-engine, turboprop maritime patrol aircraft with the endurance and ability to conduct wide-area maritime search operations, which gives the aircraft an advantage for search-and-rescue missions.

#Tbt #UsNavy Guided missile destroyers such as the #ArleighBurke class are actually larger and more heavily armed than most previous ships classified as guided missile cruisers, due to their massive size at 510 feet (160 m) long, displacement (9200 tons) and armament of over 90 missiles. #AerialPhotographer #DepartmentOfDefense #DDG102 🇺🇸 #Canon #Shoot2Thrill

USS Sampson (DDG-102)

This ship is an Aegis destroyer in the United States Navy. I took this photo in 2011 Seafair, which was held in Seattle. Seafair is held every year in Seattle, and it's a big festival in Northwestern in the US.

You can see USS Sampson in the Hollywood movie, 'The battle ship.' #seattle #seafair #usssampson #ddg102 #aegisdestroyer #warship #battleship #navy #sunset #시애틀 #씨페어 #시페어 #군함 #해군 #노을 #이지스함 #미국서부 #미국여행

#USNavy Sailors assigned to #USSSampson #DDG102 flew ashore Nov. 18 to support #NewZealand forces in rendering assistance to residents affected by the recent #earthquake in the rural areas of #Kaikoura.

Eighteen members of the Sampson crew, with backgrounds in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, damage control, and medical treatment departed in waves aboard the ship's helicopters from Sampson off the coast, eager to lend a hand.
Kaikoura recently experienced a 7.8-magnitude earthquake that caused widespread destruction of infrastructure, leaving much of the area cut off from other parts of South Island. While the situation is now stable, many are still without power and running water.
Sampson, originally scheduled to pull into Auckland's Waitemata Harbour, diverted course at the request of the New Zealand government to render assistance to those affected by the earthquake on the South Island. The ship joined an international task group comprised of ships from New Zealand, @royalaustraliannavy, and Canada, Sampson's crew has flown helicopter flights and brought manpower and supplies ashore to assist the New Zealand responders leading the charge on the ground.
