Bilbao Bridge – Backwards

In a nice change, the Bilbao bridge tied up the the west end of Fairview Cove backwards. Ships usually tie up front to sea, but Bilbao Bridge likely requires some sort of work to be done necessitating the backwards docking.

The Ship is Running for the Alliance’s AL6 Route. She is scheduled to sail tonight.
