    American sub USS Stickleback sunk in mishap off the coast of Hawaii is found after 62

    The whereabouts of the USS Stickleback had been a mystery ever since a training exercise went wrong off the coast of Hawaii nearly 62 years ago.

    She had completed a simulated torpedo run at the USS Silverstein when she suddenly lost power, only to surface right in the destroyer’s path. The Stickleback was struck and quickly sank.

    Now a team of explorers have found her and plan to raise her to the surface. The group from the private Lost 52 Project used old naval records and modern, remotely-operated underwater vehicles with sonar to search the sea bed near where they expected the Stickleback to be.

    Paul.
    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    The fortunate thing was that no-one lost their lives in the collision. All the crew were safgely evacuated before the sub sank.
