The U.S.S. Iowa Has Arrived

The Big Stick is now at her permanent new home in the main channel of Los Angeles Harbor, next to the Los Angeles Maritime Museum. The Iowa will open next month for tours.  Here are some photos from the museum's back deck:

The following image shows the beginning of the water cut (on left) that will be adjacent to the museum.  The Iowa can be seen in the rear right of the photo, behind the Crowley tugs and to the right of Fire Station 112:
