Article Photos: Navy to resume sinking old ships in US waters 1/2

  FILE - In this March 2, 2005 file photo, the aircraft carrier USS America is shown in Philadelphia. In 2005, the USS America aircraft carrier was towed out to sea on her final voyage. Hundreds of miles off the Atlantic coast, U.S. Navy personnel then blasted the 40-year-old warship with missiles and bombs until it sank. The U.S. Navy is resuming its practice of using old warships for target practice, sinking them in U.S. coastal waters after a nearly two-year moratorium spurred by environmental and cost concerns.
