USS Gyatt (DD-712), Hampton Roads, 1966

Here we see the Gearing class destroyer USS Gyatt (DD-712) underway in the Hampton Roads on 21 November 1966, towards the end of her time as an experimental test ship. She had been the first destroyer modified to carry guided missiles, which were contained in the sloped sided structure at the rear of her superstructure, but the missiles were removed in 1962 and a new experimental mast can be seen on top of the former missile hanger.
