The Chinese ships sailing to Hawaii for Wednesday
port calls Sept. 6, 2006 are the destroyer "Qingdao" and the oiler
"Hongzehu", just ahead of a bilateral communications exercise and passing
exercise in Hawaiian waters with the Pearl-based destroyer USS Chung-Hoon.
It is the first visit by a Chinese navy ship to a U.S. state in six
years. (Photo: Chinanews)
