The submarine USS S-5 stern bobbing almost vertically after almost sinking during diving tests September 1, 1920, after being spotted by the steamship Alanthus, the Alanthus’s captain turned his vessel around to investigate. Approaching the submarine’s stern rising above the ocean, the captain hailed S-5 in maritime fashion. That conversation became legend:
"What ship?""S-5.""What nationality?""American.""Where bound?""Hell by compass."
All the crew were eventually successfully rescued
More trucks from the MS Zenobia sunk June 7th 1980
