Azorian: The Raising of the K-129 (2010)


In 1974, the CIA hatches a secret plan to salvage a Soviet submarine which sank in the Pacific Ocean in 1968.


In 1968 the Soviet ballistic missile submarine K-129 sank in the Central North Pacific.

American intelligence located it within weeks of its demise.

The CIA crafted a secret programme to raise the submarine in 1974.

Now after much secrecy, this story can be told, by the men who made it happen and with never-before-seen footage of the actual salvage attempt, and new evidence of the project’s successes and failures.
