Members of the local and national media gathered along the sea wall to interview former Sailors and to document the last voyage of the decommissioned US Navy (USN) Intrepid Class Aircraft Carrier USS ORISKANY (CV 34), as it makes its final trip to sea while under tow, near Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola, Florida (FL). The ORISKANY will be towed 22-miles south of Pensacola in approximately 212-ft. of water where it will become the largest ship ever intentionally sunk as an artificial reef. After ORISKANY reaches the bottom, ownership of the vessel will transfer from the USN to the State of Florida
