 30.02.50N      87.00.50W

USS ORISKANY being towed into position about 24 miles off Pensacola Beach

26 charges detonated on the carrier. The small boat seen on the carrier
deck housed a generator and electronics to set off the explosives. As
The vessel sinks it is designed to float off! And it worked.

She went down in 37 minutes - that's what I call a wreck!
