Photos of Vandenberg in Key West

USS Vandenberg in Key West - dockside at the Truman WaterfrontThe USS Vandenberg has arrived in Key West and is now snugly berthed at the Truman Waterfront.

The ship was welcomed into port by the Conch Republic army, with many locals watching as tugs maneuvered the 520-foot ship into its temporary dockside home.

Final preperations to prepare the Vandenberg for sinking will begin immediately.

The ship is expected to be sunk in 140 feet of water south of Key West sometime in May 2009. (I hear May 15 is the tentative date).
