    Thanks for that video Tanglediver.
    Mammoet is the best. They love jobs like this, nothing is impossible. I'm not a very chauvinistic Duthman, but companies like Mammoet and Smit Tak make me proud to be one.
    I've been in heavy haulage for most of my working days, but had to quit it after 30 years because of my worn out back. I miss that line of work a lot so videos like this always put a smile on my face.

    Indeed! The Russians, or should I say, the Russian Federation did not want the US gaining any info on the Kursk that they had already gained from the K129!

    if i have my story straight the ruskies didn't even want their own people knowing what was going on. delays in notifying crew families;refusing rescue help from other nations plus doping a next of kin at a belated televised press conference. what i'd really like to hear is the backstory to operation odessa.
