ARCTIC OCEAN (March 21, 2009) The Los Angeles-class submarine USS Annapolis (SSN 760) is on the surface of the Arctic Ocean after breaking through three feet of ice during Ice Exercise (ICEX) 2009. Annapolis and the Los Angeles-class submarine USS Helena (SSN 725) are participating in ICEX 2009. With the support from the University of Washington Applied Physics Laboratory, ICEX 2009 enables the Submarine Force to operate and train in the challenging and unique environment that characterizes the Arctic region.

The Annapolis popped up to ask directions from some locals, don’t let ’em fool you.

Is it me or did they miss their target? What’s the cross-hair cut in the ice to the sub’s 3 o’clock position?

To go along with all my other wuss factors — trapped in a submarine and under however many feet of water and under however much ice — oh, yeah, so definitely NOT a dream come true for me!!

Love boats and the water, just don’t want to be under it.
