New Hampshire, Arriving.

Welcome to the fleet, Virginia Class #5, the USS NEW HAMPSHIRE.

The Navy’s newest Virginia-class attack submarine, the New Hampshire, is scheduled to be christened Saturday at its shipyard in Groton, Conn., the Navy announced.

Adm. Kirkland Donald, the director of naval reactors, will deliver the ceremony’s main address. The ship’s sponsor is Cheryl McGuinness of Portsmouth, N.H., whose husband, Thomas, was the co-pilot of American Airlines Flight 11. The plane was hijacked and crashed into the World Trade Center in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. McGuinness will break the traditional bottle of champagne across the New Hampshire’s bow.
