USS Greeneville (SSN 772) incident


Media visit to submarine

U.S. Pacific Fleet Public Affairs


PEARL HARBOR (Mar. 1, 2001) -- Media interested in learning first-hand about Los Angeles-class submarines are invited to tour a few spaces on board an attack submarine Sunday morning, March 4. Spaces for viewing will include the control room, the sonar room, the crew's mess and the torpedo room to help media reporting on the upcoming Court of Inquiry better understand the submarine's configuration.

To ensure the widest range of media have an opportunity to visit a submarine before the Court of Inquiry, only media who did not attend the Feb. 25 tour may sign up.

All discussions with tour guides will be on background only. No recording devices will be allowed.

The scheduled tour times will be followed to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to see the submarine.

Interested media must call Pacific Fleet public affairs at 471-3769 before 5 p.m. Friday, March 2, to reserve space on one of the tours. Media will meet in the parking lot outside Pearl Harbor's main entrance, Nimitz Gate, at their appointed time where they will be provided transportation to the submarine. Media will not be allowed to drive to the site.
