Vanha USA:n taistelulaiva ampuu viimeiset paukkunsa.
In early 1991, the United States Navy Iowa-class battleship, USS Wisconsin (BB-64), fired her mighty 16 inch guns for the last time. This was a most auspicious (ceremonial, NOT combat) occasion because this massive ship had served commendably in three wars – World War II, Korean War and Gulf War – since her commissioning on April 16, 1944. (She now serves as a 'museum ship' where she is berthed adjacent to Nauticus, the National Maritime Center in Norfolk, Virginia.) The Iowa-class battleships were a class of 'fast battleships' ordered by the USN in 1939 & 1940 to escort the Fast Carrier Task Forces that would operate in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Four were completed.
