Photos From Inside the Suisun Bay Mothball Fleet

     Defense Tech had a interesting story a couple days ago about a group of photographers who sneaked inside the mothball fleet in Suisun Bay, California.
     The U.S. Navy has 6 reserve fleets scattered around the country, these fleets include early Los Angeles-class nuclear submarines to 1950s-era destroyers to the USS Iowa. In recent years there have been reductions in the size of mothball fleets around the country and in the next 20 years they will be almost gone. Thats why a small group of photographers over a two year period sneaked aboard the mothball fleet in Suisun Bay and photographed the ships there before the ships are scraped. Take a look of some more of his photos below:
