Here's what the damage inside the Bonhomme Richard looks like
[Navy Times] Photos have emerged online this week of the charred insides of the amphibious assault ship Bonhomme Richard, which burned for more than four days this week.

A Navy official confirmed the authenticity of the images.

The collection below was gathered and posted on Twitter by @Osinttechnical.

The fire was called away at 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday said Friday that officials thought the blaze was under control as of Sunday evening, but that wind and explosions forced a retreat of fire crews.

Whether the ship will sail again remains unclear.

#1 Looks like a total loss to my untrained eye. Even if it were fixed, nobody would want to sail on her.
