Re: Unbelievable drydock
This doesn't seem to be a drydock - the ship was in work above the ground - on rails? Apparently she was to be refloated in August, so they must have had rails built leading to the basin to the north.
(Even though Jon's image link doesn't work directly, I was able to see it with Firefox View Image and also by going to Severodvinsk in Google Maps. And that view is not realtime.) A google search shows several photos of the ship father along in reconstruction than Jon's Imgur image.
I've seen some wild drydocking before, but this is way too far inland for a ship of this size. It's the Russian Battlecruiser Admiral Nakhimov in Sevmash being refitted and modernized. I can't understand how they'll refloat it without destroying everything to the north of the ship.
