    Amazing seeing that F313 is already in Bodø : I saw here being pulled out of the hanger at Håkonsvern Navy Base by a Navy tug early on Wednesday morning when I flew down to Bergen to a Safety Conference in Fjord1.

    She must have sailed fast northwards right afterwards.

      Isn't this a "brand new" ship??? And just being pulled out of the "Hangar" at Haakonsvern some more???
      Look at the state of her. Rust streaks everywhere!!

        She's NEW?? My first thought when i looked at her was "she's a mess". I presumed she had just returned from a long tour of duty in some other part of the world. She is looking rather dirty and not very well cared for.
        Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

          Based in Portsmouth, HMS Edinburgh (D97), a type 42 Royal Navy Destroyer, has been visiting Edinburgh for a few days, moored at the cruise terminal in Leith. Although there was time allotted for public visits during Sunday, this was badly timed for me and, given the publicity locally, I envisaged a whole afternoon queuing with no certainty of actually getting aboard! However I did get along to Leith yesterday, and took these photos from my usual spotting places at Western Harbour.

                        The Aussies sank one of their retired navy ships this week: in order to become a dive attraction and to create an artificial coral reef.

                        See the sinking in this video clip:

                            That white "thing" is not her Bulbous Bow but the Asdic Dome.
                            She is up on very high Dock blocks and has entered the dock "arse end first" to protect it and covered to protect from spying eyes. (Chapman??)

                              This is the destroyer USS Hayler, commisioned in 1983, decommissioned in 2003.
                              She was taken out of the fleetlist in 2004 and sank as a target in a sink exercise 13th November 2004.
