PHOTOGRAPHY – An American Warship in Hong Kong

The USS Peleliu (LHA-5) AH-1Z Viper amphibious assault ship was docked at Ocean Terminal for much of this week. Hong Kongers were all of a fluster as the Americans dropped by on a scheduled, routine R&R stop. However, the high-profile presence of the USS Peleliu was said to be a ‘nod’ to tensions on the Korean Peninsula.

Below are some of the best images captured during the week. Whilst viewing these shots, Hong Wrong recommends a choice of two musical accompaniment options…

‘Top Gun / ‘Take My Breath Away’

OR Village People’s ‘In the Navy’
