USS Francis Scott Key SSBN 657 Underway Pictures

Updated 08/04/2008

These photos were taken throughout the Key's life at sea.  Some are official navy photos and other were taken by shipmates or family members.  We are always looking for pictures of the Key so look through your albums and send any you find to ssbn657@comcast.net.

Jeffery Reiser informs me that FTBC(SS) Robert Browning is responsible for the above double exposure picture of the Key.  The Chief was ships photographer in 1989.  We hope the Chief will supply us with more of his Key pictures.
