Random thoughts and insights – always shaken, never stirred

USS San Francisco Redux

leave a comment »

Remember the USS San Francisco, the sub which ran aground while submerged last January? The Navy has concluded it was ‘pilot error.’

The crew of an attack submarine that struck an undersea mountain in the Pacific Ocean earlier this year did not adequately review navigation charts that warned of an obstacle in the vessel’s path, according to a Navy report released Saturday.

I have no idea if this is whitewash or not, but you knew someone had to be blamed.
