Down She Goes. The USS Oriskany Says Aloha As She Sinks Under The Sea.

OSS Oriskany Sinks
The Mighty "O" is no a ship that is, she is now the world's largest artificial reef. Navy divers detonated explosives aboard the ship this morning, sending the retired aircraft carrier to Davey Jone's locker. She is now 24 miles off Pensacola Beach and 212 feet underwater. The local honchos hope that she will boost the economy by becoming a prime destination for sport divers and fishermen.
