It's amazing that a big sub can be poised on some blocks along the keel........

RUN AGROUND?????????

Looks like it ran into the side of a mountain. I'd expect to have seen just the BOTTOM of the front dented a little

CNN Just released a shot of the captain and co-captain of the USS San Francisco seconds before running aground.

Great pics. I was in the sub service for 8 years from 83 to 91. The LA class has a sonar dome in the bow which is outside the pressure hull. Looks like it hit the dome which acted like a shock absorber which must have helped cushion the blow. I wonder if the pressure hull was breached???

Somebody, or several somebodies careers are OVER!!!!!

Captain
Navigator
Quartermaster
Officer of the Deck

And that's just for starters.

That is what happened, according to news reports... an underwater mountain not on the charts. at 35 knots. we're gonna need more duct tape.
