USS Cowpens (CG-63)
Visiting Sydney, New South Wales, in mid-1997.
This wide-angle photograph was released by the ship's Public Affairs Officer on 2 August 1997 with the following caption:
"'Sitting on Top of the World', that's what it felt like to the crew of the USS Cowpens (CG-63) and looked like in this picture of 'The Mighty Moo' during a recent visit to Sydney, Australia. The Sydney Opera House and Bridge, that have become landmarks that signify Sydney are clearly seen in the background. The city is becoming a traditional stop for our Seventh Fleet assets and is preparing for the upcoming 1998 Olympic Games."
