More photos from the Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility

March 30, 2016

Some more photos from my brief visit to the Naval Inactive Ship Maintenance Facility in Philadelphia, PA.

The top photo (best if viewed full size) shows (based on this Wikipedia article) from L-R: The amphibious cargo ships Mobile, El Paso, and Charleston,  the destroyer USS Charles F. Adams (foreground), the three Ticonderoga-class Aegis missile cruisers Ticonderoga, Yorktown, and Thomas S. Gates (background) and five Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates Taylor, Elrod, Simpson, Samuel B. Roberts, and Kauffman.

The middle-left photo is the USNS Guam, a high-speed transport vessel.

Middle-right is a different view of the Oliver Hazard Perry frigates, and the bottom photo is the three Ticonderoga cruisers with the amphibious cargo ships in the rear.

  1. Great photos Andy, didn’t think the iPhone had it in it, but it does. Especially like the panorama!


    • I’ve found the trick is to never zoom. Since it doesn’t have an optical zoom, the quality degrades quickly with digital zoom. I’m also using one of the newest devices.

      • Yes, I found the same Andy, zooming kills everything on a phone. Despite me having the Samsung S6 I don’t really use it for photos very often, but perhaps I should try more.


  2. Thank Goodness that the took preventative measures to protect these National Heroes from Moths!
