Not much of a landing area on that sub. These one way plane rides?

The planes are float planes. They would land next to the sub and then be lifted aboard by the crane on the foredeck.

I believe the war was over in September of 1945. The picture of the subs tied up to the USS Euryale (AS-22) was dated November 1945.

I would think they were surrendered at the end of war signing.

Thanks for the info. That's funny Russia was mad because we wouldn't let them examine the subs before we sunk them!

Two of the subs, I-400 and I-401 surrendered at sea after the Japanese surrender. The third (I-402) had been converted into an underwater oil tanker and was in port when the surrender occurred. I-402 was sunk, along with most of the other Japanese subs, off The Goto Islands. The other two were sailed by US Navy crews to Pearl Harbor for inspection.


And yes, Stano, the Cold war was just beginning!
