U.S. Sub Collides With Ship
Monday, September 05, 2005


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — A U.S. Navy submarine collided early Monday with a Turkish merchant ship in the Gulf, the U.S. Navy (search) reported. No one was hurt on either vessel.

The USS Philadelphia (search) was traveling on the surface of the Gulf when it hit the Turkish-flagged M/V Yaso Aysen, a cargo ship, at around 2:00 a.m. local time, the U.S. Navy 5th Fleet Headquarters in Bahrain reported in a statement.

No sailors or merchant seamen were injured, the Navy said.

The Philadelphia was conducting surface operations on its way to Bahrain for a scheduled port visit, the Navy said.

The submarine continued to Bahrain (search) where inspectors will check it for damage. There were no immediate reports of damage to the Turkish ship.

The Navy statement did not say exactly where the collision took place.

The Philadelphia is part of a fleet of U.S. and allied navy vessels patrolling the Gulf, conducting what are called "maritime security operations" against weapons and drug smuggling.

You would think that they would remember what happen the last time they conducted an experiment in Philadelphia.

They can detect an enemy sub under billions and billions of metric tons of ocean, but they can't spot a boat while they are both on the surface

The Persian Gulf is a very crowded, heavily-trafficked body of water and the crash happened in the middle of the night. Still, the commander's probably finished.

I speak from first hand experience. I served on the boats and have seen exactly what happens in this circumstance. The following people have just ended their naval career.
1. The C.O.
2. Officer of the deck
3. Navigator
4. Quartermaster of the watch
5. lookout watch
6. Helmsman/planesman
7. Sonar Tech on watch

because he has physcial control of the boat and must be ready to act immediately. Although the big black turds don't turn on a dime or stop for that matter. He does have the watch. And that is how the navy looks at it.

Too bad NASA can't learn from this. The person most responsible for Columbia is still working, in management, at JSC, last I heard.

Well that is just a completely ignorant statement. Submarines travel on the surface, especially in and around shallow water, like heading into port which is exactly what PHILLY was doing at the time.
