KCFPA Ship Dispositions

The most recent status of the fleet
Please email scott@yeageraviation.com with updates. Include web references, when able.
  • Active: these ships were last reported to be in active service with a foreign navy. Each of these represents an opportunity to reclaim an intact vessel, with operational equipment (subject to de-mil on the part of the owning government)

  • Donor candidates: these ships are either active, were sold to the foreign navy as parts, or were last known to have been decommissioned by the owning government. Of those three conditions, the parts/decomm ships represent an opportunity to reclaim at least a good portion of a vessel, seaworthiness - and thus transportability - unknown.

  • Unavailble: these ships are simply lost to us.
