Re: PICTURE

Chuck, that is USS Nautilus the first nuclear powered boat.

The link below the pictures you to a page with more pictures showing the result of a collision between Nautilus and the aircraft carrier Essex on 11 NOV 1966.

I recall seeing Nautilus come back into New London and walking over to the pier for a closer look. The story being told at the time was that Nautilus was engaged in 'war games' with the Essex group and tried to go under the carrier and got sucked up into the prop.

The following report is probably what really happened.

November 11, 1966
350 miles east of Morehead City, NC

USS NAUTILUS (SSN 571) collides with the USS ESSEX while running submerged during underway replenishment exercises. Both ships return to port unassisted. The submarine receives extensive damage to its sail area and goes to New London, CT. The ESSEX sustains an open hull cut in the bow area and proceeds to Norfolk, Va.
