perhaps she was "specially selected" as she is so well known to the Spanish, for her ability to leak coolant problem back in 2000, but also because she had another in early 2013

and has been getting some bad press in Parliament recently

she is also due to be withdrawn from service in 2014, being more than the normal "retirement" age.
another incident in 2007 resulted in 2 sailors losing their lives whilst working on a joint exercise with USS Alexandria which was also used in the film Stargate - Continuum, which was dedicated to those 2 sailors.

perhaps an unlucky ship.

However most of them were totally ignorant of or in denial of the radiation leak from Acerinox at the North end of the Bay.

It gave me great pleasure to say Acerinox whenever a Spaniard said Tireless and then point out the meaning of my statement.

In 1998, the Acerinox factory in Los Barrios, Cadiz melted a capsule of cesium 137 that was in a consignment of scrap metal.[4][5] The radioactive substance was released into the atmosphere and spread over Europe — nuclear authorities in France, Germany, Italy, and Switzerland detected up to 2,400 microbecquerels of ionising radiation in the air, 1,000 times higher than the norm.[6][7][8] Two other factories in Huelva and Badajoz also became contaminated by waste transported to them from Acerinox.[5] During the clean-up, 7,000 metric tons of radioactive waste were dumped in Mendaña marshes, Huelva.
It is still there leaking radiation into the surroundings.

Bit of a shocker that Fred, though I can't say I ever heard about it before and I don't suppose for one minute they would ever try to hush it up.

Strange our old pal Lampy never mentioned it either, considering the number of times he's registered his concern regarding similar issues.
