On February 22, 1971 the Oklahoma City crossed the sill of dry dock #5 in Yokosuka, Japan for a two-week upkeep period.  During her "high and dry" period, Oklahoma City was scraped down, sand-blasted and given a new coat of paint.  Resting on scaffolding, she took on a "Gulliver" appearance with scores of Japanese workmen dwarfed by her hulking size.
