The Hot Zone: Chesapeake Bay Target Ship

The Hannibal is the U.S. Navy’s only live-fire target ship in the Chesapeake Bay, scuttled on a sandbar near Smith Island, MD. It’s routinely shot up by helicopters and jets out of the Patuxent River Naval Air Station.

Details appear in the May 2008 issue of Soundings.
