The newbuilding acquired by Morflot in 1975 from Britain, after the original Danish ordered had collapsed financially, here on the Hudson passing the almost newbuilt Tower-skyscrapers of the World Trade Center, which was 26 years later blowned up with an airstrike attack with civilian airplanes by, ironically, once in the 1970's and 1980's British-American financed islamist terrorists for the Afghanistan civil war - an awful beginning of the new 21st Century. The ODESSA was scrapped as the SYDNEY in mid 2000's. There had been hopes after her return to port Odessa after the long Italian arrest, that she could open the Odessa-Crimea-Caucasus line after its closure in 1993 - but the ship was instead sold to the breakers, the Ukrainian economy of those days in the 2000's was too corrupt to organize a new shipping operation, after the organized criminal gangster-capitalism which made the famous BLASCO of Odessa to totally collapse in the mid-1990's.
