Welcome to my Phibron 4 Pictures Page!
Phibron 4 Flagship USS Nashville (LPD-13).
USS Whidbey Island (LSD-41). This cruise was her maiden voyage. We called
her the "Hotel Whidbey."
USS Inchon (LPH-12). We called her the "Inchworm." This is a close as
Spartanburg County ever got to her due to ongoing flight operations and I didn't
have a zoom lense.
USS Newport (LST-1179). Out sister ship and lead ship of the Newport Class
Tank Landing Ships. Note that she carries the causeways (floating barges) on
her stern quarter.
Another view of USS Newport (LST-1179).
USS Spartanburg County (LST-1192). My home for six months, here riding at
anchor in Saint Raphael, France.
Preparing to "back-load" equipment after an operation in Sardinia.
The business end of an LST.
The business end of an LPD. Note that the well deck is not flooded for
this particular operation. Whidbey Island was similar in this configuration.
