|HMCS Olympus - Welland Canal - September 12, 2011|
|The diesel-electric powered Oberon-Class sub HMCS Olympus heading for the scrap yard at Port Maitland after a long haul from Halifax. |
The 90-metre, decommissioned Olympus looks forlorn, having been stripped of various equipment including its periscope apparatus.
The sub was built in Britain in 1962 and sold to the Canadian Navy in 1989. The Department of Defence announced in 1995 that the navy's four Oberon-Class subs would be sold for scrap for about $50,000 each.
