"BAE Systems Barrow Submarine Fire Probe Continues"

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. So if it was'nt minor or major, it must have been significant.
     
  2. Seems like something and nothing. Temporary plastic vent trunking is quite common but generate a lot of smoke when you torch them.

    Without a full fire report I'd take it as a bit of scaremonger type journalism. Always good news for Journo's having a fire on a nuclear submarine (with or without reactor).

    It gives the unknowing a Chernobyl/Windscale wibble...nuclear plus fire in the same headline.
     
  3. I'm surprised none of the nationals have picked this one up, tbh.
     
  4. It's what makes me think it's a storm in a teacup plus there's bigger stories at the moment
     
  5. Doesn't just about every ship/submarine in build have at least 1 fire. Seem to remember there being 2 on the Gloucester in Woolston one of them quite serious but that never made even the pompy rag.
