USCGC Mackinaw (retired)

commissioned in 1944 she was homeported in Cheyboygan Mi at the top of the Lower Peninsula so she could easily travel east or west to Lake Huron or Michigan. her purpose was to keep the shipping lanes free of ice during the crucial war years.

she was built too wide to transit the St Lawrence Seaway (from the Great Lakes to the Atlantic) to ensure she stayed in the Great Lakes.

retired in 2006, her diesel engines were filled with concrete to preclude her ever moving under her own power without an exorbitantly high cost of refurbishment. she was retired due to upkeep and maintenance costs. Mackinaw is now a museum ship in her namesake port of Mackinaw City Michigan.

The Soviet K24 class submarine, in the NATO code Juliet, was launched in 1961. Decommissioned in 1991, now as a museum in Peenemünde (Germany).

Nice capture Lubos, I wondered what had become of the place, thanks.

So this, I believe, is where Von Braun developed the V1 and V2 rockets we received as a free gift from the Fuhrer in the early 1940s. -?

There is an interesting museum in Peenemünde, reminiscent of the development of V1 and V2 missiles, which we of course also visited - he was actually the main goal of our expedition from Czech Republic. Three retired colonels of the Czech army and I, as a retired lieutenant colonel as driver :-D. Sorry for OT - it isn't Ships.

It also had a few nice friendly visits from the R.A.F. They were so friendly that the research fascility, what was left, smartly vanished underground some where in Poland. At least I think it was Poland, but it was far enough away to discourage more visits :rolleyes:

Nice image, they are lines up neatly making a clean image.
I also notice they look remarkably clean below the waterline.

Thanks Lubos. Two well preserved rockets in the top picture, we have got a few of them on display over here and there are marker plaques often fitted near where they fell, although there wasn’t much left after they fell. The V2s were the most feared because they were silent travelling above the speed of sound.
Was the car you traveled in a 1939 Mercedes-Benz 770K Grosser Offener Tourenwagen by any chance - and was one of you carrying a brief case? :-):-)
