Athabaskan from sea

HMCS Athabaskan made an impressive sight as it dodged through sunny breaks entering Halifax this afternoon. The ultra sleek looking ship appears to be emerging from an extended refit with surprisingly little material on her masts.

It wasn't possible to get a clear shot of her from where I was due to background clutter of refineries, hospitals, etc., but she certainly looks clean and nimble.



  1. Looks like what I would take to be the long range radar has been moved from the short mast to the tall mast.

  2. I am glad to see her back. I was worried with the collision and cut backs she might go the way of HMCS Huron. Great ship, one of my favorites.
