USS Missouri - Part 4

We got to go inside several parts of the ship. I found the control room to be the most fascinating.

One of the young Navy guys said something hilarious to his buddy about these 2 red phones: "That phone on the left is a direct line to the President. The other one is a direct line to Domino's!"

The display on the top - which is completely old school by the way (not a computer screen) - represents the position of every gun on the ship.

Marc turned off the regular lights and showed us what the blue ones look like. Apparently the blue ones are on most of the time, day or night.

The remainder of the photos in this section I took on my own, outside of the tour.

This is the dining room for the senior officers.
And their lounge immediately adjacent.
