From March-July 1999 the submarine USS HAWKBILL (SSN 666) participated in SCICEX '99, a scientific expedition underneath the Arctic ice cap. We surfaced through the ice ~13 times, including at the North Pole. This video was taken as we arrived and surfaced at APLIS Ice Camp north of Alaska. What you see is the sail of the submarine as it surfaces through the ice. The main part of the sub remains under the ice and we had to dig out the hatches to get out.
