Oct. 12, 2001  //  Oil skimmers follow Rockwater 2 and Ehime Maru to the shallow-water recovery site to ensure any diesel fuel is quickly taken care of. The Navy anticipated diesel fuel may be released while Ehime Maru is released and worked with state and federal agencies as well as the private Clean Islands Council to ensure Hawaii's waters were protected during the operation. A helicopter was also airborne to spot any fuel release and direct the skimmers. (U.S. Navy photo.) Click here for Hi-Rez JPG.
