In 2005, the USS America was taken out to sea for the last time.

She experienced several weeks of explosions in testing, before being scuttled.

 

No picture of her sinking has ever been officially released.

 

Then I came across some information after following a facebook link....and came across this picture and article.

 

Even has new information that she went down with a load of A-7D Corsairs
