Didn't know the Brits were called. A specialized US navy rescue vessel was called, very unusual for Putin. Unfortunately its feared by the time help arrives their oxygen supply will run out.

What those boats need is huge snorkels with floats attached to the end so they float up to the surface.

So, any word on just how this happened? I haven't seen anything on just why they were stranded at 190 m depth.

Hmm... I see reports of a rogue fishing net getting caught on the propeller, but how would that trap a sub? Couldn't they just empty the ballast tanks or something?

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content"> Russian submarine and crew saved

A Russian mini-submarine stranded for three days beneath the Pacific Ocean has been brought to the surface after an international rescue effort.

The seven-man crew, who had faced low temperatures and dwindling oxygen, are all alive and were able to climb out of their submarine unaided.

The vessel, trapped 190m (620 ft) down, surfaced at 1626 (0326 GMT).

A British underwater robot helped rescue the craft, slicing through nets and debris entangling the submarine.

Russian military medics were on standby to treat the men, who had faced temperatures as low as 6C (43F) and a faltering oxygen supply.

Pinned to seabed

Senior navy official Vladimir Pepelayayev said all the men were in a satisfactory condition, according to the news agency Interfax.

The British Scorpio craft had been working for several hours to cut the vessel free of the debris pinning it to the seabed off the Kamchatka peninsula.

Initial reports said the vessel was trapped in vast fishing nets but later it emerged that the sub may have also been snagged by an underwater antenna, said to be part of a coastal monitoring system.

The sub's very heavy anchors also hampered rescue efforts.

The Russian Priz submersible - itself a rescue vehicle - was on a training exercise when it became trapped underwater on Thursday.

Earlier Russian efforts to rescue the sub's crew, which included looping a cable onto the vessel to drag it to higher waters, had failed.

The BBC's Sarah Rainsford in Moscow says the rescue is something few in Russia had dared hope for.

For many this episode revived memories of the sinking of the Kursk submarine almost exactly five years ago, when all 118 men on board died.

I had my doubts that the British rescue vehicle would get there in time. Just a wonderful effort.

It is great they all made it. Imagine their emotions when they felt the sun on their faces and the wind in their hair. I am sure sweeter than any experience any of us will ever have!

Did you notice the commander of the sub was only 25? I think it was a small sub, but young none-the-less.

Screw submarines though. At least I know that when I'm flying, if there's an emergency, I'll always come back to mother earth, albeit not always in one piece. Those submariners are not as fortunate many times.

That is so true. My thoughts exactly.

But I also have remembered those unlucky Avenger pilots (I think around late 1945) that were posted missing in the Bermuda triangle in storm conditions.

They found that entire flight of Avengers recently on the bottom of the sea, they managed to identify them by serial numbers on tails. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Rescue plane was sent to look for them, but also dissapeared after short while.

The guy also said in documentary, when Avenger pilots were ditched their planes on sea surface they would normally be surfaced for couple of mins in good weather conditions, but in storm they were surfaced for a few seconds only...

One report that I heard speaks that submarine got stuck in a SOSUS wire (US SOund SUrveillance System).
Apparently; if it is correct, they were messing something around it (probably trying to disable it or remove it, and got stuck in it).
So blame it on US! If it wasn't for their stupid undersea microphones and sensors this would not happened.

Just kidding, no one is here to blame, and as everything ended good we can make yokes on this now.
