Pictures of Philly

Crossposted from The Stupid Shall Be Punished:

Just got these pictures of USS Philadelphia in port in Bahrain after her collision with M/V Yaso Aysen. In this first picture, looking aft from the sail, it's clear that the merchant rode up on Philly's deck:



Here's a picture from the dock looking at the starboard side; note the damage to the fairwater planes:



I expect the Navy will be posting high-res versions of these pics on their website very soon...

Staying at PD...

It looks (hopefully) possible that it missed the towed array. That would be nice....

Did the CO get relieved?
