Puente Nicolás Avellaneda

Puente Nicolás Avellaneda is a 1650 metre long liftable road bridge with 2 lanes in Buenos Aires, Argentina over Riachuelo River, built from 1937 to 1940. The 57 metre tall liftable section over Riachuelo River has a length of 60 metres and offers a clearance of 43 metres when lifted, a clearance of 21 metres when not lifted; this section of the bridge carries a transporter gondola and can work like the nearby Puente Transbordador as a transporter bridge. The transporter gondola was designed to allow horse-driven wagons to cross the river without using the long strenuous way over the ramps of the bridge. Puente Nicolás Avellaneda is the only liftable bridge in the world equipped with a transporter gondola; however since 1960, this gondola is only in use when the roadway on the bridge is closed for maintenance work.

Submarine Squadron 7

Submarine Squadron 7 is a squadron of submarines of the United States Navy based at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Pearl Harbor, HI under the command of Captain Paul Davis Naval Historical Center records show Submarine Squadron SEVEN was first established during the Second World War, organized with two submarine divisions, whose mission was to conduct anti-submarine warfare training. The command was home ported in Bermuda during the latter part of 1942 and consisted of older R- and S- boats. In April 1943, the Operational Training Command, Atlantic Fleet was established with Rear Admiral D. B. Berry in charge. Operational control of Submarine Squadron Seven was shifted from the Commandant Naval Operating Base, Bermuda, to Commander Operational Training Command. Late in 1943 two Free French submarines were made available for the Training Command under United States supervision. Five more were added in 1944. After the invasion of Sicily and the landing at Anzio in January 1944, five Italian submarines came across the Atlantic in February 1944 and were assigned to ASW Training Command.

These foreign submarines were assigned by COMSUBLANT to Submarine Squadron SEVEN. The French and Italian submarines were excellent for training purposes due to their heavy hull construction and they made good substitutes for the newly commissioned U. S. Navy submarines rerouted to the Pacific for combat duty. With the curtailment of the escort program, the activity at Bermuda was no longer needed and was transferred to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Following cessation of hostilities in the Pacific, Submarine Squadron SEVEN was disestablished in 1945; the current Submarine Squadron SEVEN was established in July 1951 at Naval Submarine Base, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The submarines that make up SUBRON 7 include: USS Chicago USS Jefferson City USS Springfield USS Columbus USS Santa Fe USS Tucson USS Columbia USS Cheyenne CAPT Christopher Kaiser - Aug 2008 to Aug 2010 CAPT James Pitts - Aug 2010 to Aug 2012 CAPT Rick Stoner - Aug 2012 to May 2014 CAPT Craig Blakely - May 2014 to June 2016 CAPT Robert "Bob" Roncska - June 2016 to June 2018 CAPT Paul Davis - June 2018 to January 2020 CAPT Michael Majewski - January 2020 to Present History of the United States Navy Submarine Squadron SEVEN US Navy page.
