Tug sunk by US SSBN

Footage of 1984 incident of Midway Island...the mail tug gets it all wrong and is skewered by the subs stern planes. Why the SSBN C/O surface ran the boat at such high surface speed defies belief and might have contributed to the accident.

I like how with the tug doomed and men in the water - the guy on the video says "there goes the mail".
Nice to see people's priorities revealed.
