    Default USS Alabama park

    If you travel I 10 along the Gulf Coast...you will drive by the USS Alabama...sister ship to the South Dakota. It was purchased by Alabama School Children in the late 1950s and early 1960s bringing in change amongst other donations and towed from Bremen Washington through the Panama Canal to Mobile Bay. The collection of planes were badly damaged during Hurricanes Ivan and Katrina with many of them floating around inside a museum hanger bashing each other....no matter...do not miss this sight if you are on the Gulf Coast...or the redneck Riviera. Oh....and the USS Drum...gato class sub...is on display as well.

    Great photos and that's a bloody impressive ship!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    It is definitely worth the stop. Its neat to drive towards it and see it on the horizon from so far away. You can actually hop on some of the light gun mounts and traverse them around. The sub was interesting as well, it took a special breed to work on one of those things!
