Vandenberg to Sink

Date: 2/6/2009

After years of red tape, the dive industry is nearing the sinking of the former United States Air Force missile tracking vessel, the Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg in the south of Key West, Florida, USA. The sinking is planned to take place May/June 2009 when the ship will become the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary’s newest artificial reef. At 523 feet long, (159m) the Vandenberg is one of the three largest ships in the world to be intentionally sunk. Go to: fla-keys.com/keywest
