PT boat from WW2 rides old test course

The PT 305, which was restored by the National WWII Museum, cruises with guests of the museum Thursday, March 16, 2017, on Lake Pontchartrain, where she was originally tested by Higgins Industries more than 70 years ago, in New Orleans. The U.S. Navy PT boat that sank three vessels and saw action in Europe in World War II is back in New Orleans where it was built, what historians describe as the nation's only fully restored combat ship of that type from the era. Its return to water is the culmination of a 10-year restoration project by the museum. (AP Photo/Gerald Herbert)
