I never knew the Poseidon Adventure was a true story.

I can't imagine being down there 60 hours and figuring it is over and then some random guy pops his head up. Shocked they knew where the ship was and that they decided to dive it.

Imagine the reaction of the diver when the "corpse" reached out and touched him. runningdog


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

"I never knew the Poseidon Adventure was a true story."
It wasn't.


"From our orbital vantage point, we observe an earth without borders, full of peace, beauty and magnificence, and we pray that humanity as a whole can imagine a borderless world as we see it, and strive to live as one in peace."

I guess you didn't click the links. It has a real example of someone having a Poseidon Adventure.
