HMCS Athabaskan Off Glace Bay




Thanks to Gus for pointing me to ThreemilesFinal.com (A great Site if you like Aircrft BTW) which has this shot takken off Table Head near the Marconi Heritage Site.

Quote "It was there that I saw the tow line go slack and watch the Tugs jockey it into a stable position. The icy winds kept the Destroyer bobbing around nicely in the seas due to it being much lighter without its armament and electronics suite onboard. It must have been quite the chore for the Tugs to keep her steady."

Thanks to Erik Fullerton of Three Miles Final Photography for the use of the images.
