BB61

BB-61 USS Iowa in Istanbul on 5 October 1989, just a few months after the deadly turret explosion. A ship from the era when they built real ships and didn’t care about stealth. She was decommissioned in 1990 and turned into a museum.

    I never understood the recommissioning of USS Iowa, total waste of money. Abuse of taxpayers money for a useless purpose !

    “A ship from the era when they built real ships and didn’t care about stealth.” I certainly second that.
