HMCS Onondaga

Unread post by jbryce1437 » Sun Jul 11, 2021 5:22 pm

HMCS Onondaga (S73) is an Oberon-class submarine that served in the Royal Canadian Navy and later the Canadian Forces. Built in the mid-1960s, Onondaga operated primarily with the Maritime Forces Atlantic until her decommissioning in 2000 as the last Canadian Oberon.
Several plans for the disposal of the submarine were made and cancelled before the Site historique maritime de la Pointe-au-Père in Rimouski purchased the boat for preservation as a museum vessel. The submarine was moved into location during 2008, and is open to the public.
The first Canadian submarine museum - how the Chatham Dockyard built submarine HMCS Onondaga made the final journey to her new home at Rimouski, as shown in this YouTube version from the Spark TV channel about huge moves.
