USS Cole

Photos of the recovery of the USS Cole. In the first photo, a transport ship is "flooded" to allow it underneath the disabled USS Cole. Cole was transported from Aden to Pascagoula by the Norwegian heavy transport ship M/V Blue Marlin. As the photos progress, the USS Cole is secured to the deck of the transport ship. Then the transport is slowly raised to the surface of the water to get underway. The last photo is from Pascagoula port.
