Seen on her departure from Puget Sound Naval Shipyard at Bremerton, Washington under tow of the tug LINDSEY FOSS (IMO 9070254) through the Rich Passage. Later that day she departed under tow of CROSBY LEADER (IMO 7417288), bound for Brownsville, Texas to be scrapped.

A veteran of both the Vietnam and First Gulf Wars, she is perhaps best known for starring in the movie Top Gun, along with several other films and TV shows. After several failed attempts to preserve her as a museum, she was sold to International Shipbreaker in December, 2014.
