    What happens if these high speed subs accidentally hit something?

    I would guess there would be a loud bang and a lot of very expensive bits floating about...

    It does seem that they are trying to operate them like aircraft. But there are fundamental differences. Water is much denser so you reach "crush" depth rather sooner and the visibility is usually much less.
    Maybe they only operate them in executive swimming pools!

    When my lottery numbers come up and I buy my executive yacht, I'll have one to play with in my executive on board swimming pool...

    Oh nooooooo!

    (Actually I take it that both events will be fairly unlikely!)

    I would put a Smiley in here but my "Smiley Panel" has disappeared! Richard!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Do you mean that you had turned them off!?

    Am I not allowed to smile around here?
