Submitted by wway news on Fri, 09/30/2011 - 6:30pm.
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Fifty years ago Sunday, the Battleship North Carolina finished its long journey from New Jersey to Wilmington. It took great vision, lots of cash and some careful navigation to get "The Showboat" into the slip where she lives now.
We celebrate the Battleship's history as a protector of democracy during World War II and then as one of the state's greatest tourist attractions in the WWAY NewsChannel 3 special "Battleship North Carolina: 50 Years in Wilmington," winner of the Associated Press Broadcast Award and RTDNAC Award for Best Documentary.
Special thanks to the Battleship North Carolina and "Battleship North Carolina: The Showboat Legacy" by Common Sense Films.
