- Oriskany Reef Dive Safety Considerations

Oriskany has sunk... - by: Larry Wheeler May 17th, 2006
Pensacola News Journal, Pensacola Florida
http://www.pensacolanewsjou...

Oriskany has sunk. The last tip of the Oriskany's hurricane bow disappeared into the Gulf at approximately 11 a.m.

Local officials are hopeful the Oriskany settled on the sea floor in an upright position. But they won't know for sure until Navy divers check the vessel later today...
