From our ACVA Ship Rep for (DDG-28) D-185
Hello from Germany!
I am deeply sad to inform you, that the former German DDG "Luetjens" has arrived Aliaga to be wracked yesterday, july, 26th.
She left Wilhelmshaven, June, 19th towed by the tug named "Serval" and had a short stop in Vigo, Spain because of very bad
weather conditions during the cruise.
I was there to wave good bye, when she left Wilhelmshaven and I can tell you, it was the hardest moment in my life
Yesterday at 18:58 cet, she was pulled on the beach to be slaughtered.
On facebook, you can follow her last cruise, spotted by marinetraffic.com
Best regards and salutations to all of you.
