Escape makes its final journey

The Escape (ARS-6) is pushed by tugs down the James River this afternoon on it's way to be recycled in Chesapeake, Va.. The ship was commissioned by the US Navy (USS Escape) an Diver class ship for rescue and salvage service in 1942, and later supported the nation's Mercury manned spaceflight program in the early 1960s. The Escape will be recycled at Bay Bridge Enterprises, LLC, of Chesapeake, Va., at a cost to the federal government of $115,200.
