MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) - The USS Yorktown at the naval museum in Mount Pleasant is adding a new plane to its collection of vintage aircraft.



On Friday, a Douglas EA-3B Skywarrior is being added to the ship at the Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum on Charleston Harbor.



The Skywarrior was introduced in 1956 and is one of the largest aircraft designed to land on an aircraft carrier.



The plane will arrive by barge and a crane will lift it onto the Yorktown deck.



The last plane added to the Yorktown was three years ago when an anti-submarine jet was lifted onto the deck of the World War II-era aircraft carrier.
