Remarks & Notes 
As seen from the flying bridge of the Oliver Hazard Perry-class USS McClusky (FFG 41). Built at the San Pedro Todd Shipyard, which closed in 1988, it was commissioned Dec. 10, 1983, in Long Beach. It is 453 feet long, displaces 4,100 tons fully loaded and can hit speeds in excess of 30 knots - 34 miles per hour. Meanwhile, the little GE on the land side of Anaheim Bay is 80 tons, and was built in 1953. I'd like to take a chance here to thank the US Navy for allowing the general public in to see this fascinating operation this weekend.
