17 - Wisky

From 365 Project
On January 17, 1991 the USS Wisconsin directed the sequence of Tomahawk missle launches that initiated the opening of hostilities in the first Gulf War. Over the next six weeks BB-64 provided fire support to coalition forces. On February 28, 1991 the Wisconsin fired her last naval gunfire and later that year she was decommissioned for third time. Since December 7, 2000 she has been part of the Norfolk Virginia waterfront. Her decks are open to visitors. Captured with a Canon 40D, f11, 1/160s, ISO 200, 50mm.
