Portland Press Herald: The U.S. Navy’s new stealth destroyer, the Zumwalt, slipped unannounced Thursday [Dec. 10] into Portland Harbor. In keeping with its intended mission, the warship emerged from the fog just off Cape Elizabeth shortly before 3:00 p.m. and caught Maine’s largest city by complete surprise.

The 610-foot ship sailed past Portland Head Light and docked at the Ocean Gateway terminal on Portland’s eastern waterfront. It was expected to leave at midnight and continue sea trials after dropping off and picking up personnel and supplies.
