Aerial port bow view showing the Decommissioned US Navy (USN) Intrepid Class Aircraft Carrier USS ORISKANY (CV 34) sinking. The carrier will rest on the sea floor 22-miles south of Pensacola, Florida (FL) in approximately 212-ft. of water in the Gulf of Mexico, becoming the largest ship ever intentionally sunk as an artificial reef. After ORISKANY reaches the bottom, ownership of the vessel will transfer from the USN to the State of Florida
