Re: Curious... How often do we hit things.... San Francisco
USS San Francisco hit an underwater mountain at high speed in 2005, one fatality and multiple injuries among the crew, you can google pics...
while on a ship or sub?? I mean have any of you experience your ship/sub hitting something large ( hopefully not enough to sink ya ), but enough to file a report, or seen the damage when inport, OR you had to dry-dock??
Just saw a report of USS CONNECTICUT SSN-type (SEAWOLF-class [??]) hitting an underwater object. I still remember when I was a young 'sea-squirt' hearing about a KNOX-class FF hitting or getting Hit by a "sea creature" (damaged the sonar dome).
I mention ships and subs, because if an A/C hit somethin' its curtains!!
Thanks for your time.
