Photo #: USN 1136658
Wreck of USS Scorpion (SSN-589)
View of the sunken submarine's bow section, on the Atlantic Ocean floor 10,000 feet deep, some 400 miles southwest of the Azores. Probably taken when Scorpion was located by USNS Mizar (T-AGOR-11) in October 1968.
This image shows the top of the bow section, from the vicinity of the sail (which has been torn off)--at left-- to the tip of the bow--at top center. The torpedo room hatch is visible about half-way along the length of this hull section, with a lifeline track running aft from it.
The original photograph bears the date 30 January 1969.
