Floating U.S. history

For any of you in the Bay Area, on May 20th the USS Iowa will pass under the Golden Gate bridge (under tow) on its way to its new home in San Pedro, CA. Should be a remarkable sight.

Haven't seen a timeline, but I'll see if I can't find one.

Re: Floating U.S. history

I'm headed out to Nevada but I'd love to see it passing the GG bridge...it would make for a nice picture.

Re: Floating U.S. history

Updated schedule. Weather permitting, the Iowa is scheduled to pass under the Golden Gate bridge this Saturday at approximately 3:00pm.
