World War Two battleship USS Iowa sets off on final voyage
The battleship USS Iowa, which served the United States through victory and tragedy during six decades at sea, set off on its final voyage on Saturday, a trip to Los Angeles to become a museum.
With a cheer, volunteers in hard hats cast off the last of a dozen thick lines that had moored the 175-foot-tall gray dreadnought in the Port of Richmond. Then it slipped slowly into the San Francisco Bay, towering over the three tugboats that pulled it.
