The aircraft carrier USS Forrestal arrived in Philadelphia this morning to await its fate.
The ship, which was decommissioned in 1993 in Philadelphia after 38 years in service, had been moored next to the USS Saratoga in Newport, R.I.
It left under tow Tuesday and arrived today.
The Navy initially had offered the carrier as a possible museum, but withdrew it from the ship donation list when no viable plan emerged.
The ship, the first of the post-World War II "super carriers," will now either be scrapped or sunk to become an offshore reef.
In Philadelphia, the Forrestal is docked on the Delaware River at the former Naval Shipyard next to the USS John F. Kennedy, another aircraft carrier that was decommissioned in 2007.
