Greetings! A week ago I posted a thread on my upcoming visit to the HMCS Haida while visiting friends in Waterloo, ON. I said I'd take a ton of pictures and post them when I got back, so here I am delivering.

 

But wait! On my return trip I took two detours: first one was to Bay City in Michigan to visit the USS Edson, and the second was to Chicago to see the U-505 at the Museum of Science and Industry.

 

I have well over 600 pictures of the three vessels, with over 300 of just the Haida. In this post I'll just do a teaser of the three, just a few images of each. I'll do a more in-depth post about the Haida in the coming days, and I'll upload all 600 images to imgur and give you guys those links later (slow internet, bleh).

 

So without further ado, here's some pictures of the exterior, main armament, galley, and engine rooms of the three (IMAGE HEAVY):

Don't know why this one is blurry. I'm just a potato photographer I guess.

U-505:

Like I said, I'll make a detailed post for each one in the coming days as I get the time to do it.

Should have stopped by Muskegon too. USS Silversides is moored there.

I also missed USS Cobia in northern Wisconsin as well. I knew both were there, but I was limited by how much I wanted to spend on hotels and how little I wanted to sleep in my car.

Very cool +1   That sub is displayed in a very cool manner, never seen one inside like that.

She used to be outside. They built the indoor facility because she was deteriorating. They did a good job with it,,, sort of like a mock submarine pen.

Yeah, turns out Chicago winters and steel don't go well together...

Nice, I always wanted to see U-505 I used to play a lot of silent hunter 3, and Aces of the Deep before that. I'm going to Pearl at the end of August so Missouri is on my list of things to do.
