    Lt. Cmdr. Thomas Vetter, USN, Ret., was one of the pilots of the Trieste II, and is a friend of mine. I’m pretty sure I got the picture from him. Since he was in the thing, he obviously didn’t take the picture, but I will let him know about your comment.

    Could you tell me the situation in which you took it, so that I can pass this information on to him?

      I was a crew member aboard the T-II in the late 70’s and early 80’s. I took that photo (and a lot more) during that time. I have a post on the T-II crew members’ website with photos (http://www.bathyscaphtrieste.org/contents/hogan1/index.htm) from that time. I’m sure Tom got it from there. I’m okay with you using it, but would appreciate it if you would give me credit.

        If you check the page now, you’ll see that credit has been added beneath the photo. Thank you very much for permission.
