An American Virginia Class submarine - the USS Missouri - passed through Rhu Narrows this morning as she headed on up to Faslane Naval base.
She was escorted by the Serco tugs SD Dependable and SD Reliable.
Always nice to see our American allies come to our shores, and friendly waves were exchanged.
