|1.07k|| Taken 8 December 1979 during the launch of the Phoenix (SSN-702).|
Ohio (SSBN-726) is in the water, the Michigan (SSBN-727) is on her starboard side out of the water, and the Florida (SSBN-728) is partially visible (starboard/aft) in the large assembly building. The Boston (SSN-703) is barely visible just inside the open bay doors in the small assembly building closest to the starboard side of the Florida (SSBN-728) and the Phoenix is being launched. I believe that the City of Corpus Christi (SSN-705) is barely visible behind the closed bay doors to the port of the Phoenix.
