BATH, Maine (AP) - The last of a new class of warship has departed a Maine shipyard.

The USS Lyndon B. Johnson was constructed at Bath Iron Works and is the last in a class of three ships the U.S. Navy has described as the largest and most technologically sophisticated destroyers in its history.

The stealth destroyer is the last of three Zumwalt-class ships to be built at the Bath shipyard. It departed on Wednesday.
