LITTLE ROCK, AR - The USS Razorback has sailed into the port of Little Rock this afternoon.

The World War II-era submarine came in cradled between two barges that helped her through the shallow portions of the Arkansas River.

The submarine is to be the centerpiece of the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum in North Little Rock.  The submarine came to Central Arkansas from Turkey, 7,000 miles away.
