Iowa was in our Coral Sea battle group in April '89 during workups in the Caribbean. Absolutely the most impressive inanimate object I've ever seen was BB-61 steaming at approximately 30 knots about a mile off our starboard quarter. I'll remember that sight as long as I live. It was jaw-dropping, and I felt transported back in time 45 years. Unfortunately that was the same workups during which her #2 turret blew up. :(

I had the same impression when I visited the USS New Jersey for the first time in 1983, shortly after she came out of mothballs and was about to be modernized at Terminal Island. That armored belt on the hull was absolutely amazing.
