Summary:
Admiral Cole on the bridge of the Falcon cupped his hands over his mouth in shock as geysers of water shot 30 feet into the air from pontoons popping to the surface unexpectedly. The hissing sound of compressed air split the atmosphere. Clouds of spray spewed above the commotion.

Abstract:

Admiral Cole on the bridge of the Falcon cupped his hands over his mouth in shock as geysers of water shot 30 feet into the air from pontoons popping to the surface unexpectedly. The hissing sound of compressed air split the atmosphere. Clouds of spray spewed above the commotion. And then, the black bow of the Squalus lunged vertically from the surf, out of control, like a great, wounded creature of the deep. At a 60-degree angle, she hung there, 30 feet above the surface, water cascading from her forward torpedo tubes and "192" clearly visible on her bow. She seemed alive, trying to shake cables tethering her to pontoons that bobbed wildly about her. Then she slid backwards and disappeared.
