A collection of HDRs I took of the USS Wisconsin, now a museum in Norfolk, VA. This is the second Iowa class battleship I've been on, the other being the USS New Jersey. Good news is the USS Iowa will likely be turned into a Museum at the Port of Los Angeles! The Iowa class ships were the largest US battleships ever built, mounting 9 16" guns. They served from WWII through the Gulf War. The Wisconsin, or Big WhisKY, was involved in a collision in the early 50s, requiring the replacement of her bow with the one from the incomplete USS Kentucky.
