Iowa

The #2 turret of the USS Iowa (BB-61) explodes on April 19, 1989, killing 47 members of the turret crew. The left gun of Turret One in the background is fully elevated as its crew tries to clear a misfire that occurred earlier by trying to coax the powder bags to slide backwards against the primer.
