PCU North Carolina News Reports

PCU North Carolina's recent media availability resulted in three reports from a Wilmington TV station; the first one is here:

The next two are here and here. Some good footage of the inside of a new Virginia-class boat can be seen. And, as expected, some mistakes by a well-meaning reporter who did the voice-over based on quickly-written notes are evident -- such as in the 2nd video, which opens with a Submariner getting pinned with his "fins". I suppose "fins" and "fish" are kind of similar...

Are PCU CO billets now O-6? I seem to remember O-5 COs at EB two years ago.

I cant wait until helicopters and search planes become fair game for subs.

About the fins thing, the submariner is getting pinned with his "fins", its a dolphin pin, and dolphins have fins. No mistake there.
