The USS Constitution took a trip around Boston Harbor on Friday, opening its 2022 sailing season.
The famed ship, known as Old Ironsides, departed Charlestown Navy Yard for Castle Island to fire a 21-gun salute visible from Fort Independence.
Later on, as the Constitution sailed past the U.S. Coast Guard station that stands on the site where she was built and launched in 1797, she was due to fire a 17-gun salute.
The public was again able to take tours of the undefeated ship after she returned to her berth by 3 p.m.
Old Ironsides is the oldest commissioned warship that's still sailing.
