USS Missouri - Part 2

Here are some exterior shots of this enormous battleship. It truly is an amazing piece of technology! It participated in 3 wars:

  • World War 2
  • The Korean War (1950 - 1955)
  • The Gulf War (1990 - 1991)
Because of this, there's a variety of different technology from different eras onboard.

Also interesting is the fact that between 1955 - 1984 the USS Missouri was decommissioned and sitting in the harbor in Bremerton, Washington, just across from Seattle. So though Honolulu is home to her for now, there's no guarantee that the Navy won't take her back in the future.
