Hoi Ronald,

Dan is ze maar heel kort on Antwerpen geweest.
Toen ik haar zag komen, was het weer al niet best, en in het donker is het natuurlijk ook niet makkelijk om een mooi plaatje van haar te maken.

Bedankt voor je berichtje.

Mooie foto ! :-D

Het schip zal vanavond (17 maart) tussen 21:00 en 02:30 uur uit de Kalloosluis in Antwerpen vertrekken. :-( Jammer dat hij niet overdag vertrekt ....

I'm glad you like her Derek.
I had never seen this one in Antwerp. Every now and then we do get a visit from US armey ships.
Fellow spotter Dirk (Contrail) made a photo of her getting loaded/unloaded at the mooring place. You can see her here.

A very nice shot of this "grey lady" was this a "one off" call?

Dank je Ron!!
Het weer was helemaal niks vanmiddag.
Maar ik ben wel blij dat ik haar gezien heb!!

Jammer dat het weer niet meezat op dat moment.
Een machtig schip hoor.
