Coming Back in the News...

Cross-posted from Molten Eagle.

For the record, she returned to New London the following November and operated along the eastern seaboard until decommissioned at Submarine Base, New London. Your guessing is welcomed to demonstrate your submarine subject matter expertise, but guesses will not be confirmed right/wrong until this news actually breaks. Hint: If you can guess her hull number, you may also be able to guess the origin of a news story coming more than 28 years after decommissioning.

Guesses so far:

1. July 4th, Bubblehead, ASR-16
2. July 8th, Anonymous, USS SALMON ?

I'm guessing ASR-16...

I'm going for either 571 or (more likely) the USS Triton (hull number not handy).

I dunno if either has been scrapped though - I'm not an SME by any means. But the timing is kinda right, isn't it?
