USS Flier’s Grounding

At Midway Atoll

Rebekah J. Hughes, author of Surviving the Flier, has produced and published on her blog several videos relating to the the grounding of the USS Flier (SS-250) at the entrance to Midway Atoll on her first patrol in January 1944. The first one is especially good and will help you understand how this could happen in what visually seems to be such a wide body of water. Job well done Rebekah! Thank you for sharing it.
