They tend to get stuck during retraction. Something in the reel jams and they can't get it fully retracted so they have to cut it free.

Why don't they use a uhf link to relay to vlf from land?

Or do they have to be over the sub to get a message?

They'd have to bounce the signal off something to get it to where the sub is. Satellites would have to be geosynchronous and many to cover enough area to reach subs just about anywhere. Aircraft are far more flexible.

Tu-4 with a tu-91 double prop test bed in place of Ann engine? Incredible how perfect a copy the Tu-4 was despite the much simpler materials and manufacturing techniques used. The cockpit is almost indistinguishable from the 29.

I was wondering if you folk could find pictures of the OVIES or CUTIES?

Well, it looks like a Boeing B-29 superfortress to me, but no idea what that is strapped to the wing

That last one looks like a Tu-4.

It's probably NOT going to be a Tupolev in a name-that-Boeing thread
