01/31/11 62 W - + 11 - 3 Morehead City Ship Explosion Footage, 1961

While using Google and trying to find the length of Morehead City's fireboat, this Youtube clip presented itself. It's camera-shot video of projected color film footage of the USNS Potomac, which exploded and burned at the state port on September 26, 1961. We've blogged about that history before. Read the story, then watch the footage. Pretty cool.
