A while ago Gaijinass talked about a series of images about the wreck of the Soviet Murmansk Cruiser on the coast of Norway. First launched in the 50s the aging cruiser sat in a Soviet port before being sold to India for scrap.
On the way to its dismemberment the tug and cruiser hit a storm and the ship landed just outside the Norwegian village of Sørvær [Google Map Link]. There it sat, half sunk, rotting, for almost 20-years. Now finally they are dealing with the shipping hazard (and possible source of radiation poisoning). Salvage contractor AF Decom built a sea wall around the ship and it appears like they are going to drain the water around the vessel and then take it apart piece by piece using machinery from APE Holland.
A live webcam from the site appears to show most of the salvage has been done.
