1/21/84 30 years later, the Los Angeles Class Fast Attack Submarine USS Augusta (SSN-710) slides down the ways at Electric Boat.

When surfaced, the bridge access hatch can be optionally open or shut, however, when submerged it is required to be shut. (Really a no s***t precaution from a procedure in use in the sub fleet today.)
